Let’s filter out all of those entries that have damaged as state_prov. This should simplify our summaries.

 [1] Wisconsin    California   Ohio         Michigan     Washington  
 [6] Pennsylvania Oregon       New York     Minnesota    Indiana     
134 Levels: Alabama Alaska Alberta Antwerp Aragon Arizona ... Zeeland

Let’s visualize the top 10 states by median pumpkin weight in these contests. California has the highest median pumpkin weight of these states.

Warning: Removed 2633 rows containing non-finite values (stat_boxplot).

Let’s separate the pumpkins out by type, and compare the distributions over the years for United States, United Kingdom and Canada. You can click on the legend to remove or show the different countries.
