A Different Sort Of "Great Pumpkin"

Happy Halloween, guys and ghouls. Do you ever get reminiscent for the Halloween of childhood ... ah, the sugar highs, the Nixon masks and "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" on TV?

Well, this year, a different sort of "Great Pumpkin" will be getting airtime tonight, thanks to our Assignment America correspondent Steve Hartman and producer Linda Karas. They trekked over to Frerichs Farm in Warren, R.I., this month for the annual pumpkin weigh in ... and found some gourds that were truly outstanding in their field.

Here's a little awww-inducing preview, thanks to grower Steve Connolly. Be sure to check out Steve and Linda's full report tonight on the CBS Evening News.
