Recently we asked our readers to send us photos of their large or unusual produce. Here are some pictures of some unusual and large potatoes, sent to us by a couple of readers:
The two sizable spuds were sent in by Deb Sletten of Mayville, with her grandson Kyle providing the modeling work.
Sletten says she pulled several large vegetables out of her garden this year.
The other item might not look like a potato, but Maurice Degrugillier of Fargo says it’s a Yukon Gold and it was grown by his cousin Laurence Heglund.
Degrugillier thinks it looks like the head of a teddy bear. Heglund believes it resembles an alien. Regardless, it was the only odd-shaped spud in the batch.
We’ll have more unusual or interesting produce next Wednesday in the Life section. And if you have some impressive or curious produce to share with us, e-mail a photo and a little about it to Features Editor Robert Morast at email@example.com.
