The Lucky Duck Giant Pumpkin Drop

made a huge splash!

 

 
We did it!  Thanks to the farm engineering skills of Farmers Scott and Mark and the skillful Crane Driving from H&M Crane,  the Lucky Duck Giant Pumpkin Drop was a huge success.  Despite the windy day we made a big splash.  We drew the winning lucky ducks in the Farm Market with the help of Boulder Crest's Amy Petit because the wind was too heavy to keep the ducks contained on the pond.  Congratuations to all our winners!
