Weighing Pumpkins

Hello IGWers:

When did pumpkin weighing become such a huge sport? Does it have any legs during the off-season or does pumpkin weighing only count in October. It seems like it has come out of nowhere to capture at least the news media’s attention. I guess 1600-1700 lb. pumpkins seem to capture the imagination at least for a couple of seconds.

However, do they behemoths have names? I just don’t know that the pumpkin farmers have with these overly large vegetables.

To each his own!
