  • (lighthearted instrumental music)

  • - Good day! (laughs)

  • We grow giant marrows, four foot in a month.

  • 45 inches.

  • These marrows would taste exactly the same

  • as a normal marrow.

  • Nice and tender and lush.

  • Some of them look a bit tough,

  • but once you cut into them, they cut like butter.

  • My name is Phillip Vowles.

  • I live in Llanharry, Wales and I grow giant vegetables.

  • (lively instrumental music)

  • I've been growing giant vegetables now

  • for the last 30 years.

  • I come from a very large family.

  • My mother had 17 children.

  • 13 of us survived, and I think, you know, that was something, you know,

  • big vegetables feed big families.

  • You know, I'm up here every morning, every night,

  • every single day of the week.

  • There's a lot of love and care goes into it.

  • Sometimes I do a bit of talking to them as well

  • to encourage them to grow

  • which is a bit of, you know, a bit of fun.

  • I think he's just about finished growing there now.

  • I got to be very careful the wife is not about

  • when I start talking to my vegetables,

  • but it's all good fun.

  • I broke the world record for the heaviest cucumber

  • what, 25 years ago.

  • It weighed 18 1/2 pound and it was just incredible

  • the way it grew.

  • When I started, if we had a marrow 20, 30 pound in weight,

  • you had a big marrow.

  • Now, we're up over a 100 pound in weight.

  • A normal cabbage would be two pound in weight,

  • but we're growing 'em 120 pound.

  • You know, you can feed 120, 130, 140 people off one cabbage.

  • This is why I supply the local pub,

  • and they use 'em up for Sunday lunch.

  • I've developed my own strain, more or less, now.

  • I select my own seed every year,

  • the biggest and the best seed,

  • and it just seems to be improving which is incredible.

  • I grow organically.

  • I had to think, if I can do it, anybody can do it,

  • and it's a big thrill every day.

  • The wife say, \"What am I doing up the lot every day?\"

  • And when she comes up she realize.
