SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - When you think about pumpkins, you often think about going out to the country, but a Springfield homeowner has a pumpkin patch that any grower would most likely be proud to call his own.
Sabret Maylor is proudly displaying his 50-pound pumpkin, which is the biggest he's ever grown.
What's the secret to growing a fifty pound pumpkin? Maylor told 22News he grew this large, economy sized pumpkin in a small backyard area.
“I think I planted it in May, and this is the result right in the pool area; and this is what I planted,” Maylor said, showing off the great pumpkin.
He has plans for the pumpkin; he’s going to cut it up, and what he doesn't eat, he'll share with his neighbors.
