Jack Fahey lifts the 109 plus pound pumpkin he grew in his backyard.
Entering this past weekend, Jack and Debbie Fahey’s backyard garden at the rear of their Misty Lane home had nearly two dozen sizable pumpkins, one weighing as much as 109 pounds, with a dozen or more vines, some reaching 40 feet in length. One of the largest pumpkins was 5 feet in circumference.
“We started in May with pumpkin seeds in six small dirt mounds and expected to get a crop of handful of small pumpkins for the grandkids to carve,” Jack Fahey said. “Well, it grew massive, and we are amazed at the size and quantity that grew.” less
