Big Zac Contender

Tomorrow’s the BIG day for vegetables in the state of Utah:  the tomato section of the Utah Giant Pumpkin Grower’s annual weigh-off.

I just returned from harvesting, hoping for possibly one even heavier than 3.208 lbs.

From Big Zac (5.32 Lyons 2011) (3.9 Catapano 2007), I picked one that measures:

CC1=44.3, CC2=32.9, CC3=46.2

W=0.016043*CC1*CC2*CC3 (weight in grams)

So W=1,080 g, or 2.38 lbs.

Caliper measurements are 16.51X11.88X10.04, which yields an estimate of 2.16 lbs.

Which is closer?  I won’t know for a while – I’ve gotta get back to work ASAP.   Just posting this entry for the fun of it!  Pics on scales to come.
