giant onion

Here is some dull news from Harrogate, Yorkshire, about prize-winning giant vegetables. 

The onion in the picture weighs 18 pounds – or as much as two reasonably-sized babies.

Dear Steve

Wow. This is interesting. Extreme Gardening.

It’s certainly fitting that this artcie comes from the Anorak. [Note to American readers: In the U.K., the word “anorak” is sometimes used to describe a dull person.]

We’ve heard about Extreme Sports, most of which are much to exciting for us. Even Extreme Ironing — where participants hike up to mount tops to do their ironing — is too much for us.

But growing giant vegetable. That should be OK.

Thanks for sending this to us.
