Who knew pumpkins liked country music

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

There's something big behind bars at the Rhode Island state prison.

Inmate Elena Hall has grown a 260-pound pumpkin.

Guards planted the seed in March and put Hall in charge of taking care of the orange gourd.

She calls her prison pumpkin Miss Demeanor.

A local television station reports Hall fed her pumpkin a diet of country music -- by putting headphones on it.

Hall says she wants to stay with gardening when she's set free.
