Lords Of The Gourd: The Pursuit Of Excellence

The extreme gardeners who compete at the annual Cooperstown Weigh Off have one obsessive goal -- to raise the biggest giant pumpkin in the world. These gurus of the gourd nurture their fruits through harsh weather, floods, animal attacks and even sabotage to produce glorious pumpkins of gigantic proportion. This program follows Joe Pukos and his fellow competitors through the final harrowing days of harvest and the journey across New York State with the bulging behemoths strapped into the backs of their pick-ups. Joe is a real contender -- at least until last minute rumors circulate that another grower may be set to smash the world record.
