NY husband, wife vying for biggest pumpkin

September 23, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
A husband and wife in Lafayette, just south of Syracuse, are competing with each other for the largest pumpkin grown in New York State.

Currently, Kathy Adams has two candidates. One weighs in at 600 pounds, and the other is 800 pounds, but they still have some growing to do.

Her husband Gary is nurturing a pumpkin estimated at 1,400 pounds.

Just last week, there were predictions that the East Coast pumpkin crop would be smaller because of recent storms.
