And, it Fell With a Huge Thud.........................

World record giant pumpkin

In what has become an almost annual Fall event, there's new world record weight for giant pumpkins again this year. Fueled by a willingness to share "how to grow" secrets, and an almost universal belief that "I can grow a world record pumpkin", the record is destined to fall again and again.

In early October, 2021, Stefano Cutrupi of Bordighera, Italy brought his monster giant pumpkin to the weigh off at the Big Pumpkin Festival in Peccoli, Italy. He made history with the pumpkin weighing in at 2702 pounds (1226kg).

Fueled by a willingness to share "how to grow" secrets, and an almost universal belief that "I can grow a world record pumpkin", the record is destined to fall again and again. Where and when will pumpkins reach the limit to their growth? We don't have a clue. But, it's sure fun watching the record fall each year.

Pumpkin Nook is Redesigned and Updated

Autumn Pumpkins 

 

It's big news! It's exciting news!

Over the past few months, we have been working on a redesign and update of our sister site Pumpkin Nook. It's here just in time for Fall and Halloween.

We have just completed the daunting (and quite laborious) task of updating Pumpkin Nook to the world of 2021. Pumpkin Nook is now much more user friendly and mobile friendly. It contains highly improved navigation. We have updated content and images, too.

Whether you are reading about how to grow pumpkins, grabbing one of over 140 recipes, checking out the giant pumpkin weigh offs, or cruising the Halloween pages for party ideas, we believe you're in for a great experience.

Pumpkin is not an online store. Rather, it's a high quality, deep content site with information on everything about pumpkins. Our goal is to document everything about and related to the world of pumpkins. We are not there yet. But, we are close. Frankly, we hope we never run out of pumpkin things to write about.

 

Please visit Pumpkin Nook today. You'll be glad you did.

 

.Ps Please share Pumpkin Nook with all of your friends.
