    Most of the giants are more gourd than pumpkin and aren't very tasty. When it comes to taste, smaller tends to be better.

    It might be fun to carve, though, lol!

    You would need a bulldozer to clean out the insides on that thing.

    Half Moon Bay is close by; the only problem is that Highway 92, is only two lanes, most of the way, and is well known for getting backed up - weekends, forget it.

    I bought some seeds from Lowes that were supposed to be Giant Pumpkins. I was so hopeful but my pumpkin is probably only 10 pounds at best. This was my first pumpkin I ever grew, but I was disappointed. The package said it got average size 500 lbs, with some as big as 1500 lbs. We didn't get hardly any rain this summer though, so maybe that's why, although CA doesn't get any either in summer.:doh:

    WOW!! I've seen some biguns but wow that is huge!
    And I was so proud of my 3 100 pounders and the little 10 pound squirt. lol

    I do have a decent sized yellow punkin tho. It's pretty cool.
    Well, hubby thinks its a punkin, I opened a small one dying on the vine and it does have seeds but also reminded me of a squash of some kind.
    It started off as a shiney round yellow ball. Then it got ridgey after a while.
    I reall have no idea wtheck it is so if anyone has an idea....type away please. lol:p :waitasec:
