Food Pantry announces pumpkin growing contest
Can you grown a HUGE pumpkin…or are you willing to give it a try? The Rhinelander Area Food Pantry is hosting a pumpkin growing contest this year. Growers can register and pick up free quality seeds starting today. The winner will be selected at the Harvest Hoedown event scheduled for October 3.
Awards will be presented in two categories, heaviest weight and largest circumference for two groups, youth (age 16 and under) and adults. Registration and seeds, along with directions and tips, are available at the Food Pantry, Monday through Fridays, from 9 am to noon. Farmer’s Feed Store donated the seeds for the contest
