A Bumper Crop for Pumpkins!

It's been a bumper crop for pumpkins this year in Nova Scotia.

In the Annapolis Valley, a man grew a 733-kilogram pumpkin, breaking the record for the heaviest one grown in Atlantic Canada.

Then, a week later, Carl Graham of Donkin surpassed that with his pumpkin, weighing in at 18-hundred and 11 pounds; which is 821-kilograms..... the third biggest in the world.

It's also been a big year for the pumpkin yield.

Conrad Niesten runs Hank's Family Farm in Millville.

He spoke to Yvonne LeBlanc-Smith earlier today about the harvest.
