Home of the Giant Pumpkins!!

Sorry for two pics. Where I am from, Circleville, Ohio, we grow some of the largest pumpkins you've ever seen. We also have the world's largest pumpkin pie. I took these pics a couple of years ago as my hands were too busy with a newborn to take pictures this year but the pie has now grown to 14 feet from the dinky 3 feet in the pic above. The numbers on the pumpkins are the weights of the pumpkins.

The Pumpkin Show is near and dear to my heart as it is a yearly tradition for my hometown and even the schools close. I planned my wedding around it in fact.

The handprint in the pie is kind of disturbing...

We've got a Pumpkin Festival out this way too but I haven't been in ages (unless you get there at crack of dawn, it's super crowded!)

That is great! I am always a little scared of large pumpkins, they seem alien and not right..but I LOVE the pie, hand print and all
