A Bumper Crop for Pumpkins!
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.
