Springfield man squashes state record

Big congratulations to Wilbur Horton who this year grew Vermont's largest squash ever, tipping the scales at over twelve hundred pounds.


In 2015, Horton grew the largest Vermont pumpkin of that year (1,438 lbs) plus other humongous vegetables including this oversized 60 pound marrow which also set a state record.    

2,075-pound pumpkin smashes record at Topsfield Fair in  Topsfield, Mass.

Wilbur Horton's 1,422 lb. pumpkin 3rd place.
