Can you take the guess work out of estimating the weight of a giant pumpkin?

It is that time of year again. The leaves are changing colors, the air is crisp and giant pumpkin guessing contests are in full swing. I was wondering if there is a formula that could be used to estimate the weight of a giant pumpkin. How could you use this concept in a math lesson or review? What better way to provide students with a real world example of how to use math skills to win prizes!
