This is a picture story really but the writing is worth a look, and I know its a late post but catching up slowly i promise.
Battle of the vegetable giants by Ian Aitch
It was a hectic few days driving to Northampton, South Wales and Cornwall in order to capture these great British Eccentrics at home in time for the magazine deadline. The tension being the vegetables had to be at their biggest but we still needed a lead time so the feature could run in conjunction with the main Giant Veg competition at Bath and West Show Ground on September the 5th. http://www.bathandwest.com/marshall-seeds-gardening-pavilion/169/.
