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?
