    I'm not going to tell my hens (providers of manure) about this. They might think I expect them to step up their output to help grow a gigantic vegetable!
    I've always wondered what is done with the giant pumpkins--huge amount of pies, and how do you cut the thing up?

    Not sure humans would find them edible, I have read some cities that have the giant pumpkin and other veggie contests send those veggies to local zoos or wild life centers for the animals to enjoy.
