2019 has started and so the all growers were invited for the yearly New Year’s reception on Saturday January 26th. Plans about how to grow the biggest pumpkins this year where discussed while having a beer.
At the last Saturday of August, we went to some of the big pumpkin growers to estimate the weight of their pumpkins. The heaviest pumpkin on Saturday August 25th measured, had a weight of 850kg. Let’s go for 1000kg or more! The day ended, like always, with a nice BBQ.
On Saturday August 27th we drove around by bike for the 2nd patch tour of 2016. We really have some nice big pumpkins this year, so hopefully heavy enough for the Belgian Championship and maybe even for the European championship. We’ll know within 2 months.
