Elmwood resident springs a 642-pound pumpkin
ELMWOOD -- Rick Stohr was seeking a stress reliever, something he could do when his day as a salesman is done.
The Elmwood native, thanks to friends and family, found growing pumpkins, especially big ones, to his liking.
"I grew up on a farm and the trials and tribulations of farming are the same things you experience with pumpkins," he said.
It's safe to say the 2008 season was a good one for Stohr in his three years of competitively growing pumpkins.
