Clinton Pumpkin Crowned King of the Pumpkin Patch
A giant pumpkin grown by Clinton resident Eric Ambler won first prize at the Guilford Fair’s Giant Pumpkin contest this past weekend.
Eric’s pumpkin weighed in at 459 pounds outweighing all competition. The pumpkin was started in May on Eric’s historic homestead located within the Liberty Green Historic District on land once part of the original 1663 Rossetter Farm.
Eric, a 5th grade science teacher at Brown Middle School in Madison, is looking forward to setting a new record next season with seed harvested from this year’s record crop.
