Unbelievable Carrot

“We knew it was going to be big when we took it out of the ground, but we didn’t know what it was going to look like until we got the dirt washed off.” Elaine and Don Faas grew this carrot (actually two appendage-laden carrots joined) in their garden at 4419 Ross Road. Don, who headed Ames High School’s industrial arts department, said he had received many opinions characterizing the vegetable. The whole thing weighed about three pounds.
