*This contest has ended. Thank you everyone for participating. The weight of the zucchinis and board was 24.5 pounds. *

*Congrats to the two winners who had the closest guess:*

*RuthAnn #87 – guessed the exact weight 24.5 pounds. Congrats!**SaraL #5- guessed 24 pounds.*

We were out of town for a few days and come home to these gigantic zucchini. They’re huge, out of control and they’re from the garden. Check them out!

To celebrate Summer and veggies-on-crack, we decided to have little fun with them and have a guessing game contest to see who guesses the weight of them all. Two years ago we had you guess the weight of Henry, our giant beet root. This Summer, it’s all about the zucchini.

*Diane, Sierra & the garden loot (iphone)*

Even within just a few days, these zucchini grow so fast, we can’t keep up with them. Many of you have mentioned that you’ve grown zucchini this huge too, so it looks like we’re all possessing the same green thumb or luck. What ever the case, let’s have some fun with our garden monsters.

**The Prize – Custom Printed Photo Cards – Two Winners!**

As a pre-view to our new online store, we’re giving away a set of our custom photo cards!

Soon, our store will have stock, photo prints, photo cards and photo products available in various styles and sizes. As an added bonus to our online store, we’ll showcase our marketplace of unique food styling props and unique home decor pieces that we collect during our travels. So many of you ask us where we get our food photography/styling props, so when we find extra pieces , we’ll be adding them to our online marketplace collection.

In the meantime, we’re giving away a set of 3 (5×7) photo cards that we custom print ourselves at our studio. These photo cards are printed on high quality textured, canvas paper.

Hi…My first guess is 8.5 lbs…..I just love you guys!!!!!!

I ‘liked’ your page on facebook, and I’m guessing 47.5 lbs this time!

26.5 lbs —not so much based on anything. I did read recently that left to grow on their own zuchinni can reach over 2 ft long. But then the seeds are bitter, ect. So best to pick/ use before you reach that point! Nature is amazing!

I think the zucchini weigh about 3.5 lbs! Lots of goodness waiting to be enjoyed!

My guess is…8 pounds for the zuccinis and the board.

My guess is 47 pounds 11 ounces

34lb for sure
