Once again, CBC Sudbury's Morning North radio program host Markus Schwabe is attempting to grow a giant pumpkin.

This year he's had help from the experts at Science North in Sudbury.

Morning North has one giant pumpkin growing at the science centre, while Science North has another.

Follow the progress in this gallery.

As of early September both pumpkins are close to 90 kg or 200 lbs. At this size, these giant pumpkins can gain up to 10 lbs of weight each day.
