Retirement means something different to everyone.
To Frank Mudd of Flaherty, it means growing big pumpkins — really big pumpkins.
Mudd won the Kentucky State Fair’s Largest Pumpkin Contest on Friday. His pumpkin weighed 1,046 pounds, beating the second-place finisher by 50 pounds.
“That’s a pretty good sized pumpkin,’’ he said.
Mudd, who retired from Fort Knox in 1997 and has had gardens on his 3 acres of land, never intended to get into the art of growing behemoth items like pumpkins and watermelons.
