OT: Halloween is Coming - Do you have your 1Ton Pumpkin?

Here’s a link to a post that a good friend of mine posted on his LinkedIn page. He’s a former CEO and now an Author and Historian. Of course he had to research “Great Pumpkins” after seeing this one at the Topsfield Fair in MA.

It’s a quick read for those that might be interested in growing the big one. According to his analysis (see accompanying graph) he’s predicting that it won’t be long before we see a 2-ton pumpkin!!

BTW - For us investors - he wrote an awesome book, “Innovation on Tap” which chronicles a number of innovators throughout history and modern times.

Cheers and BIG pumpkins!

That 2560-lb pumpkin was raised maybe 10-15 miles from here. Anoka is a north/west suburb and is part of the Metro Twin Cities area.

Now I’m stuck with an image of the Peanuts characters planning for the Great Pumpkin event


Meanwhile, the local “news” at noon today, ran teasers for a “report” at 6 stoking hysteria about the price of halloween candy.

Where would Shiny-land be without the constant flow of hype and hysteria?
