GROW's Pumpkin Guess-A-Roo Is Back

How much is that giant pumpkin in the window at GROW The Produce Shop? If you can guess how much it weighs, it can be yours, during GROW's 13th annual Great Pumpkin Guess-A-Roo contest.

The bright orange behemoth sits just inside the front window at GROW. Check it out (no lifting allowed!), write your guess and your contact information on a piece of paper, and submit it. On Saturday, October 27, GROW will determine the winning guess and deliver it to that person's house.

The contest is always entertaining, said
GROW owner Barry Fisher, who added that he has loved seeing little kids come in and make outlandish guesses through the years ("4,000 pounds?"). 

Fisher added, "
The best was a little boy who measured the height of the pumpkin putting one fist on top of the other until he had the number of 'fists' high: 32. He then said, 'My fist weights 1 lb, so the pumpkin weighs 32 lbs.'  I wanted to load it into his car that second."

Want to win the pumpkin? Your guess is as good as anyone's! Stop by GROW before October 27 to give it your best shot.
