The water 275gal holding tote with inline transfer pump attached. This gets me about 5 days now.

Welcome to the party John. My family will be there for the weigh off when it comes time....with any luck. Lots of things can go wrong between now and then. I expect a few fellow BSers there as well. Go big or go home.

I misunderstood the contest, and thought the weigh in was weeks ago, and the pumpkin looked like a honeydew melon in the picture (explaining my 3xx lb guess) otherwise I 'd had guess about triple like 919 pounds

:thumbup: I have one of those totes I plan on putting up on stilts like a mini water tower. Collect water from the garage roof and gravity feed it to the (eventual) garden.

When you carve a pumpkin in WV, do you put teeth on them? If so, how many? Asking for a friend.
