Do you have the largest jack-o'-lantern? Compete with fellow gardeners and find out how you rank.
   On Saturday, Oct. 20, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., amateur "backyard" pumpkin growers can enter their prized squash in the Biggest Pumpkin Contest at Molbak's in Woodinville. The contest is part of Molbak's first Fall Harvest Festival.
   Entries for the contest are open to amateur gardeners. Contestants must drop off their pumpkins between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct 20, with the judging and weighing taking place at 4 p.m. the same day. The grower of the largest pumpkin will receive a $100 Molbak's gift certificate.
   Molbak's Fall Harvest Festival takes place on two weekends, Oct. 13-14 and Oct. 20-21.
   Activities such as wine tasting, fall container planting seminars, fruit tasting and face painting will be available for everyone's enjoyment. Floral Fairyland, featuring the play "Hansel and Gretel," continues throughout the event.
