Season after season, Johnston's littlest pumpkins grow into big pumpkins


Giabella Pagliaro, 12, and Donald Pagliaro III, 6, pose with a giant pumpkin on the porch of their Johnston home.

“My husband and I have been capturing this exact photo every year since they were born,” said their mother Shana Pagliaro. “My grandmother, who is a family friend of the pumpkin grower, always couldn’t wait to see their pic with the pumpkin. She adored the excitement.”

The pumpkin grower, Norman Gansett, lives in Johnston, and enters many different pumpkin growing competitions each fall.

“We always look forward to walking over to see him start his crop,” Shana Pagliaro said.

Shana and her husband Donald, and their family live in Johnston.

Young Donald Pagliaro III loves to play football, and Giabella loves cheerleading.
