The Great Pumpkin Voyage: Cahaba Riverkeeper

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Cahaba Riverkeepers, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

If we make it to $500, I'll be turning my pumpkin into a row boat! The world record for rowing a pumpkin in a single voyage is 25 miles. Think I can beat it? Donate now and we'll find out this Saturday! Any additional donations are appreciated, valued, and welcome!

I'll also be auctioning off seeds with proceeds going directly to the CRK. Stay tuned if you'd like your chance at growing a massive pumpkin with proven genetics! This pumpkin was grown from seed from the Holland 1,679 pumpkin, which was grown from the 2,145 McMullen crossed with the 2,526 Geddes. Those numbers are how much the pumpkin weighed, by the way! Absolutely massive!
