It's fall! October is finally here, and even though it's still 90 degrees here in Tampa Bay, I've got a story to put you in the mood for Halloween and all that pumpkin spice crap (I love that pumpkin spice crap! No shame in my game! Call me basic if you want).  

A guy named Steve Geddes of Boscawen, New Hampshire just broke a record by growing the heaviest pumpkin in American history!  It's 2,528 pounds, which beat the previous record by 165 pounds.  It also won him $6,000 at a pumpkin growing championship event on Thursday. DANG! 

Unfortunately, it's only the second-biggest pumpkin in world history.  Someone in Belgium set a Guinness World Record two years ago with one that was 2,625 pounds . . . or almost 100 pounds more than Steve's.

Go Steve! I wanna know what you used to fertilize that thing! I can't even get my grass to grow, so I need all the help I can get!
