The Great Pumpkin

I am happy to report my husband and I did, indeed, locate The Great Pumpkin, residing, at least for a time, on a street in downtown Circleville, Ohio. The gargantuan squash sat on its resplendent throne wearing a golden crown and surrounded by a rotund court. Charlie Brown would be proud, I think.

The town was in the throes of its annual Circleville Pumpkin Show touted as “The Greatest Free Show on Earth.” Since the cost fell right into our price range, we figured, “Why not?” Having once been advised that a picture is worth a thousand words (an enlightening, new idea, I’m sure), I have decided to save several thousand words and share some pictures instead. You are welcome.

The heaviest pumpkin in the 2022 show.

  1. I have visited the large pumpkin growing areas of the Texas Panhandle and South Plains as well as Oklahoma and have been amazed at the amount if acreage under production. What the Midwest and New England lack in quantity they make up in number of growers, especially those specializing in growing the biggest or most unusual. In Texas local fairs are dominated by the best procine, bovine, ovine, equine or caprine. Vivi le difference.

    1. So sorry you can’t see the pictures. We can see them fine. Haven’t heard from anyone else that they have a problem. It was fun. Marion had been to the Circleville Pumpkin Show as a child, and he wanted to go by. Huge pumpkins!
