Giant pumpkins probably don't come to mind when you think of Cheyenne, but after seeing Andy Corbin's giant pumpkin you may just change your mind.
Andy has been growing pumpkins off and on since childhood, but over the past few years he has taken his hobby to a new level.
If you're thinking that all it takes is planting a seed and letting it grow, think again. Pumpkin growing, as it turns out, is quite an art. Adding to the challenge in Wyoming is the temperature, which plays a big role in the growth process.
Estimated at over 1000 pounds, this year's orange behemoth demonstrates the time and care needed to produce a pumpkin of this size.
Saturday, the giant pumpkin will be making a trip to Denver to be weighed in a competition. Andy said he probably won't get the record for Wyoming, but he should for Laramie County. As for the future, Andy plans to keep on growing bigger pumpkins, but also to have more people share in his enjoyment for this growing hobby.
