Video: It’s the Great Pumpkin…or did an orange meteor strike Morristown?

0

Mark Tobler harvested a 400-pound pumpkin from Morristown’s Early Street Community Garden this fall.

Think about that.

Four hundred pounds equals a good-sized black bear. Or a motorcycle. Or maybe a sumo wrestler.

How does one hoist something that huge?  Fortunately, Christian Schuller (a winner in our 2009 MorristownGreen.com Film Festival) was there with his camera to document the historic event for Grow It Green Morristown:

You can meet this ungodly gourd at the Vail Mansion reflecting pool on Oct. 30, at the second annual Pumpkin Illumination, sponsored by the Arts Council of the Morris Area.
