Mathias Delp, a sixth-grader at Washington Middle School, hops down from his mother’s truck bed containing a pumpkin weighing 606 pounds at the Clark Fork Market last week. Delp has been growing giant squash for five years now, each year aiming to hit a heavier mark on the scales. This pumpkin has been growing since April and began as a seed harvested from an 1,800-pound pumpkin.
