Young pumpkins bigger every year

Record Staff

This could be the year the Young family’s pumpkin wins first place in the Giant Pumpkin and Harvest Festival, coming up this weekend in Lennoxville. The Record’s own Steve Young has been participating in the annual competition for the past six years. With the help of his kids, Sean and Hailey, in previous years Young has won third place, best quality, and best new grower, but never biggest pumpkin.
Young said this year he has two big contenders. While he wouldn’t speculate on their weight, he said he is pleased with how his crop turned out this year and is hoping for the best. Published in the Friday, Sept. 27 edition of The Record.
