Location of this pumpkin is top secret

WASHINGTON TERRACE, Utah (AP) - September 23, 2010

He won't reveal just where it's growing in the Washington Terrace, Utah, area.

His gourd is also guarded by surveillance cameras.

McConkie took a reporter from a local paper to see the giant pumpkin, with a promise not to disclose its exact location.

McConkie hopes to set a new state record with the pumpkin at the official weigh-in this weekend.

The mark now stands at 1,104 pounds.

And what's he going to do with it afterward?

McConkie says he wants to drop his giant pumpkin from a crane, just to see it splat.
