Peel that if you dare!

A British gardener has produced the world’s biggest potato.
Peter Glazebrook’s super-sized spud – tipping the scales at 8lb 4oz and beating the previous world record by 9oz – was unveiled this week at the National Gardening Show in Shepton Mallet, Somerset.
Mr Glazebrook, 66, from Northampton, said: “The secret to success is starting with the right seed.”
He has also held world records for the longest carrot at 17ft, the heaviest parsnip at 13lb and the longest beetroot at 21ft.
