BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota pre-school teacher says he planted a few pumpkin seeds in August with the sole purpose of showing his students how they would blossom.

But Lincoln teacher Joshua Smith tells KXMB-TV (https://bit.ly/1qLQ0o7 ) he never imagined what those seeds would turn into.

Smith ended up with two huge pumpkins: One weighed 460 pounds and the other 500 pounds. The vines were 38 feet long.

Smith tells the station he decided to move the pumpkins to Papa’s Pumpkin Patch in Bismarck to give more children the opportunity to take a look. The pumpkins are so big that Smith had to use a special sling with his boat tire to move them.
