Fairs canceled, so girl selling giant pumpkins

Jerry Foster Farms is known for its farm-fresh pork products.

But now – thanks to granddaughter Addisyn Thomas – they have giant pumpkins for sale, as well.

Addisyn, 10, is in her second year of growing pumpkins with the help of her father and grandfather. This year, she grew giant pumpkins, getting “to see God’s miracle of a little seed turning into a giant pumpkin,” said her mother, Jessica. “Addisyn gets to learn responsibility and takes pride in taking care of her pumpkin patch.”

She waters and checks on her pumpkins often.

She had planned on entering the pumpkins in the Center Fair and the Carolina Classic Fair, but since they were canceled, decided to sell them.
