Most of us think of pumpkins for a very short time each year. It happens when Halloween calls for a jack-o'-lantern and Thanksgiving calls for pie.
But the same is not true of Bill Garvey.
Some people use their spare time running marathons. Some rebuild car engines or renovate their homes.
Garvey grows pumpkins. Big ones.
For the last three years, he has won the Michigan State Fair competition for largest pumpkin. This year his winner weighed 442 pounds.
