RETRANSMITTED TO ADD PUMPKIN WAS DISQUALIFIED FROM THE CONTEST – Dale Marshall is dwarfed by an Atlantic Giant Pumpkin that he estimates to be around 1,780-pounds inside a greenhouse in Anchorage on Aug. 29, 2011. The pumpkin was knocked out of the state fair competition Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2011, by a tiny hole. The giant gourd was grown by plumber Dale Marshall in his backyard greenhouse. Puncture or not, the pumpkin is in rare company. The world record weight for a pumpkin is 1,810 pounds. The winner was a 1,287-pound pumpkin that is the biggest pumpkin ever grown for the annual Giant Pumpkin competition at the state fair. (AP Photo/Anchorage Daily News, Bill Roth)
