Dan's heavyweight champions
12:39pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
HE’S got every reason to smile after growing some mammoth produce.
Dan Young did the double at a Michelmersh pumpkin show at his first attempt.
The 21-year-old from Southampton took the top prizes for the heaviest pumpkin and heaviest marrow in the Bear and Ragged Staff Pumpkin Club’s annual show.
His award-winning pumpkin weighed in at 618lbs and the marrow topped the scales at 75lbs.
After Saturday’s event at the pub, which included a Hallowe’en show, Dan took the heavyweights back to his Southampton allotment and removed their seeds.
He’s now hoping to grow even versions next year.
