How does your garden grow?

Massive pumpkin the largest Castlegar gardener Len Donald has ever grown.

Dog Sparky seems quite impressed by this 190 kg pumpkin grown by owner Len Donald of Castlegar.

How does your garden grow? For Len Donald of Castlegar, quite well, thanks.

This 190 kg (419 lb)  pumpkin is the largest he’s ever grown.

Fed a diet of fish fertilizer, molasses and hundreds of gallons of water, the pumpkin grew about 10 lbs per day.

It will be donated to a local church but not before making a perfect pumpkin perch for his dog, Sparky.
