I plopped Jason on top of these pumpkins so you could see how huge they are! This pile by our front door is causing quite a stir around the mission. The Zambians have never seen anything like these pumpkins, and certainly have never seen any this huge. We got the seeds from the United States, but the package is long gone so we're not sure what variety they are. They were bright yellow before they began to ripen, and since we picked them they have continued to turn deeper shades of orange. Our Zambian friends say that it's too bad the agricultural show is in August--they are sure these beauties would win first prize in the pumpkin category!
