Recently we asked our readers to send us photos of their large or unusual produce. Here’s what a reader sent to us, and what one Forum reporter found while digging for stories:
The pumpkin that might remind you of a person’s rear end was sent to us by Carol Kronbeck. She says her husband has a garden with plenty of pumpkins and squash, but this is her favorite “odd” one of the group.
More large than odd, Bill Larson’s big pumpkin was found by Forum reporter Dave Olson, who took this picture when Larson was transporting the 416-pound pumpkin to the Hotel Donaldson in downtown Fargo. Larson says the pumpkin was grown at the family’s home on Big Cormorant Lake, Minn., by his son Kal, a ninth-grade student in the Lake Park-Audubon School District. The gourd earned Kal $100 when the pumpkin placed 10th in a big pumpkin contest.
We’ll have more unusual or interesting produce next Wednesday in the Life section. And if you have some impressive or curious produce to share with us, e-mail a photo and a little about it to Features Editor Robert Morast at firstname.lastname@example.org.
