Big Zac?

Getting close to closing time, labor day weekend ends the contest this season. I'm gonna go out and check the fields one more time. Doubt there'll be anything topping 2lb. out there. LMK anyone if we need to run a little longer.

I was impressed by the German Pinks this season. Love the taste and look. Very productive and big AND pretty. Many over a pound. My Opalaka's had a tough time with some rot on the end of many. This wasn't the normal BER, it lasted much longer.
The taste got good on everything once the weather heated up. I got a lot put away for winter. Farmers Almanac is calling for a bad one and we are ready.

Going once...

Keep adding if you get bigger ones. I'd like to see just how big these things get. And any comments on the taste.

Taste is sweet and low acid.

We have a winner at 2lbs 13.5 oz. That is definitely a big one.

That winning weight keeps creeping up each year and that's a good sign. We didn't have as much participation this season, but that will come and go. Could we ever see a five pounder? See you next season.

Congrats once again Ksteelheader. I've still got your addy so watch the mail end of this week beginning of next.

Congrats Kenny. That was surely a monster. I'm already planning out next year as this year my garden was an epic fail.
