Giant Pumpkin Record Gets Smashed - Twice

Giant Pumpkin Record Gets Smashed - Twice, A New Hampshire man's monster gourd gets rolled over by an even bigger one just days later. World's Heaviest Pumpkin Record Falls Twice, The record for the world's heaviest pumpkin appears to have been shattered twice in the past five days.

Yesterday, organizers at the Topsfield Fair in Massachusetts said Ron Wallace of Greene, R.I., had taken the top honors at the fair and broken the world record with a pumpkin weighing in at 2,009 pounds.

But just a few days earlier, on Thursday, a pumpkin grown by Steve Geddes of Boscawen, N.H., weighed in at 1,843.50 pounds at the Deerfield Fair in New Hampshire. Organizers claimed then that Geddes' gourd had broken the world record.
