My name is Tyler, and I grow giant pumpkins. Not just big pumpkins. Giant pumpkins. The kind of pumpkins that could someday rise out of the murky depths of the Pacific Ocean and terrorize Tokyo. My personal best came from one of the pumpkins I grew last season. It weighed in at 1,454.5 pounds and was the second largest ever recorded in Utah.
Growing a pumpkin that large is an enormous (pardon the obligatory pun) undertaking, and as I’ve learned more about the planning, hard work, and dedication necessary to cultivating these behemoths, I’ve realized there are a lot of parallels to be drawn between cultivating pumpkins and the principles of my day job.
