By David L. Ryan/Globe Staff -- Revere resident Christian Ilsley lays next to a massive pumpkin he is growing in his backyard. He plans to hollow it out, and use it as a vessel to cross the Boston Harbor from Jeffries Point to Fish Pier and back. #pumpkin#boat#giantpumpkin#fall
Went back to the giant pumpkin patch of Leonardo for a third try at a video.
The first time I tried to do it live and the reception failed, second time we did it and the wind ruined the audio.
I think we got it this time,
hope to have it available soon.
The pumpkin in the picture is estimated at 1,400 lb and was just a flower 60 days ago. It has the potential to grow for another 60 days.
