1,661 Pound Pumpkin

For those of you who know me personally you know how much I love North Carolina. But you also know how much I love my great home state of little Rhody, Rhode Island (the smallest state in the union with the longest name. Technically it is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, but why get technical?). But you may not know that Rhode Islanders grow some of the world's biggest pumpkins. Check out this video courtesy of the Providence Journal to see world record pumpkin grower from Scituate, Rhode Island, Joe Jutras's 1,661 pound giant!

Also, if you think I have a strong northern accent this video will prove you wrong!
