So last Saturday was the Giant Pumpkin and Watermelon contest at Andy T's Farm Market right here in St. Johns. I usually attend, but was at that football game. Brian and Tim B went and submitted some entries. This picture is from the Andy T website, and I believe that's Andy himself in the yellow shirt. You can also find produce from the NCRS at the farm store there. It's worth the trip. Anyway, their pumpkins didn't win...well this year anyway.
Here is Brian's melon on the scale.
But it was Tim who took home the gold melon. His weighed 239 pounds.
Here it is. I think he is having it bronzed.
And the crowd goes wild! "Tim....Tim....Tim....Tim".
Thanks to Andy T's website for pictures 1,2 and 5 (www.andyts.com). Time to start planning for the 2014 contest.
