Big, Bigger, Biggest!

Is this Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin? Some pumpkins are merely big; some are huge; some are gigantic.  Gigantic is the word for this 1,200 pound beauty at Whittle’s Willow Spring Farm at 1031 Noank-Ledyard Road in Mystic, off Route 184.  Rick Whittle says that “It’s the best one we’ve ever had—and you can get close to it, sit on it, take your kids’ photos on it. Stop in!”  It’s by far the biggest in the Whittles’ patch of about 5000 pumpkins, Rick says, and they’ve built a setting around it with cornstalks, mums, and other fall decorations.
