A MONEYMORE family has taken gardening to new heights with their eight stone pumpkin.

The gardening great is pictured with young Noah Stewart, aged one and a half, whose grandmother Violet tended to the vegetable.

As pumpkins need a lot of sun for successful growth, it’s believed the pleasant Tyrone summer may have helped this one on its way.

If you have an impressive vegetable that matches Violet’s pumpkin, send a photograph and your details to gillian.mcdade@jpress.co.uk. You can also post a message on our Facebook page.

See this week’s Mid-Ulster Mail for the full story on the giant vegetable.
