Potato Man

Published 1:46 pm Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Tim Cochran, an occupational therapist assistant at Shady Lawn Nursing Home, holds two of the giant sweet potatoes he grew in his home garden. The larger one weighed in at 20 pounds.

Cochran planned to share the giant potatoes with the nursing home’s residents.
