Get ready to see some really, REALLY, big pumpkins!
Richard Wallace, of Rhode Island, made headlines this week when he broke his son, Ron Wallace‘s, 2,230-pound pumpkin record with one that weighs 2,261.5 pounds!
But wait, is Richard‘s pumpkin the world record holder? Not so much. This year, the Giant Pumpkin European Championship was held in Germany and Mathias Willemijn of Belgium took home top prize for a pumpkin weighing in at 2,623 pounds. That’s 361.5 lbs more than Wallace‘s!
With a pumpkin that size just think of all the pies you could make!!!!
