It all started with a pumpkin.
A pumpkin named Pearl.
Pearl has been quite the celebrity in our neighborhood this year.
Her Mom, Jill, has taken very good care of her and fed her all the right things to help her grow big and strong.
And Pearl grew to be 659.4 pounds and won 4th place in the Elkin, NC Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off. Yay, Pearl!!!
