Farming “Pumpkinstein” Monsters

Modern science has done it again, with these monstrous “pumpkinstein” creatures grown by Tony Dighera of Cinagro Farms. After experimenting with plastic molds for the last few years, Dighera was able to produce about 5,500 pumpkins bearing a striking resemblance to Frankenstein’s monster on his 40-acre farm in Ventura County, California.


Despite the amusing, rather than terrifying, results of Dighera’s creations, he and Victor Frankenstein do share a similar trait that defines many great makers; he is determined.

“When you try something for four years of your life, people really start to think you’re wacko,” he said.

Said like a true maker!
