Guess The Weight

What is Guess The Weight of the Marrow?
Located in Meridell's Meri Acres Farm, it is a friendly competition in memory of a giant Marrow that once roamed the farm. The Marrow, "Old Bessie," grew to be 100 tons. This competition is solely based on guessing the weight of a big Marrow grown on the same farm soil as "Old Bessie." 

How To Play
Greeted by a Wocky who is undoubtedly a fan of "Old Bessie," you are given a chance to share your guess of the Marrow. Every day there is a new Marrow to guess its weight and you only get one try. Marrows are typically between 200 and 800 pounds.

The first 10 people to guess the weight of the Marrow correctly will receive a nifty prize. The competition starts every morning and closes once 10 people have guessed correctly.

What is a Marrow?
Its a big, green vegetable with different shades of green stripes running along it. Inside the centre is soft and pithy with lots of small seeds in the middle. Its sort of the same as a Zucchini, only MUCH MUCH bigger (for some stange reason we just cannot find a Marrow in the USA, but they are everywhere in the UK). It may sound rather gross, but you simply can't beat a chunk of soft boiled Marrow and gravy!
