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.
