Ohhh, hello!

Image: World's largest pumpkin on forklift

It’s official. An 1,810-pound pumpkin grown by Chris Stevens of New Richmond has been declared the world’s heaviest. Inspectors from the Guinness Book of World Records checked out the massive pumpkin, after it won a competition earlier this month at a harvest festival in Stillwater, Minnesota. It has a circumference of over 15-feet. And it’s 85 pounds heavier than the previous record pumpkin, a 1,725-pounder grown in Ohio last year.

Stevens said he used a mixture of sun, rain, seaweed, cow manure, and fish emulsion to grow his record pumpkin...  MSNBC

Sounds like a good excuse to go fishing!!!!
