Pumpkins Appear In The Mother Lode

Sponsored by:

It´s a fall ritual — picking the family pumpkin, whether it´s for a spooky jack-o-lantern, a harvest centerpiece, or a sweet and spicy pumpkin pie.

Mother Lode pumpkin patches maybe hard-pressed to top the size of this giant gourd.

During the annual Half Moon Bay World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off, an Oregon man was named the big winner.

Kirk Mombert of Harrisburg took the title Monday after his whopper of a pumpkin flattened the scales at one 1,173 pounds.

Mombert´s monster won him the first prize of five dollars a pound. Makes you wonder how many pies you could squeeze out of it.
