BIG Pumpkin

. Tuesday, October 14

Ever hear of anything gaining 30 pounds a day? Thad Starr's pumpkin did, and it was enough to set yet another world record. He won last year too, and this year's pumpkin is 4 pounds heavier at 1,528 pounds. The Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-off was held on Monday in Half Moon Bay, California. Starr lives in Oregon and bought a flatbed trailer to haul the 15 foot around pumpkin to the contest. His secret? Oregon has really good soil. What, no Miracle Grow?
