Lony Ruhmann never considered himself much of a gardener, until he discovered a family of super-sized spuds sprouting in his backyard.
The South Pasadena resident recently spotted the extra large potato poking out of the plant section of his garden, so he grabbed a spoon to dig it out, he told Patch. When he got to the roots, he saw that the potato outsized the spoon — and his puppy, Cassie.
"The biggest potato weighs six times more than my dog," he said of the starchy find, which he described as "unworldly in shape."
So, does Ruhmann plan to cook them? Eat them? Serve them to friends?
"My Mom thinks I am the worst gardener in the world, so I am thinking of taking the biggest potato to her – so she can see with her own eyes what I have produced," he said.
