Veg show featured Jones and the giant pumpkin

Have your say

IF there’s one thing we love here at the Journal it’s massive veg - and here we have a classic of the genre.

Young Calum Jones, then aged 2, was pictured with this monstrous pumpkin at Bottesford show in September, 1997.

The prize-winning pumpkin was entered by Jim Burrows at the 20th annual horticultural show in Bottesford.

It was a record year for entries at the show - up 20 per cent on the previous year.

The show was organised by Bottesford and District Gardens Association.
