2014

 
In 2014, Scott Carley’s giant pumpkin weighed in at 1,177 pounds and placed 1st in BC!

This was the third time Scott grew a giant pumpkin.  He got carried away and actually grew 12 this season! Yes…12!

Several giants weighed in at 700-1,000+ pounds and two weighed in at 1,170 and 1,177 pounds!  Not bad, eh?
