The Results Are In for
2017 Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off!
What a spectacular participation and weigh-off event at the Nursery last Saturday! Congratulations to the winners (listed below) for growing the biggest giant pumpkins to ever be entered into the weigh-off!
First place winner and new record holder, Mr. Jim Sherwood with a 1,702-pound giant, goes to Coastal Farm Supply in Mount Vernon to be displayed throughout October. Second place winner, Ms. Cindy Tobeck with a 1,526-pound winner, is now featured at the produce department at the Skagit Valley Co-op. Both of these pumpkins shattered our old Nursery record of a 1450-pound pumpkin in 2014!
