It's Halloween / Samhain so what a perfect pumpkin trend to post - oh yes its time for the World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-off. It was held in Half Moon Bay in California, a coastal town which was invaded by pumpkin lovers and saw scores of pick-up trucks lining the streets all laden with the fruits (or should I say vegetables) of their labour.
