What an exciting Fall were experiencing, and October isn’t even half way over! Last week we talked about the new record holder for the largest pumpkin in the United Sates. However, a lot has changed in just a week. Today, there is a NEW United States Record holder.

The title is given to a Minnesota Horticulture Teacher after weighing in a 2,560 pound pumpkin after summiting it to the 49th World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off.

Everyone is asking how he did it! His answer is pretty simple, “Literally every morning and evening I spray fertilizer. All through out the day I can login off my phone and water 14 times a day, fertilize 14 times a day if I want it.”

Now we know what happens if we put a millennial in a Pumpkin Patch!
