Skinners grow World Champion Squash

Special to the Enteprise
Todd and Donna Skinner, of Barnesville and veteran pumpkin growers, have a new, even larger claim World Champion Squash!  The Skinners' 2,164-pound entry at the Oakland Nursery weigh-off in the Columbus suburb of Dublin on Oct. 10 set a new world record with their huge gray gourd. The Skinners held the Ohio pumpkin title with their 2017 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival entry of 2,150 pounds until this year's entry by Jeff Theil eclipsed that with a 2,195 new state record.
