No time to road trip up to New England and take in the foliage? No problem! Here are some gigantic pumpkins for your fall-weather daydreams.

 

These gourd-geous photos were taken on Monday at the 42nd annual World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off in Half Moon Bay, south of San Francisco.

 

The winning entry belonged to Steve Daletas of Pleasant Hill, Oregon. His pumpkin topped out at lumpy yet whopping 1,969 pounds to claim the $12,000 prize.

 

“It’s been a good year,” he said, according to the Associated Press. “I’ve never grown an official 1,900-pound pumpkin before.”

 

For scale, a smart car weighs approximately 1,800 pounds, but don’t get your hopes up on one of these turning into Cinderella’s pumpkin coach.

 

Now all that’s left to do is check out the photos and carve one of these into a Trumpkin.
