25 Years Ago
It was apparently a good year for some Roane County gardeners. Wallace Ferguson of Harriman grew an 18-pound cantaloupe. He said he got a few seeds from a man who said the cantaloupes would grow as big as dishpans. A 3-pound potato was grown in the garden of Rebekah and Beecher Givens of Westel. The couple said they regularly grow large potatoes, but this was one of their largest. And finally, Alvin Cofer of Pumphouse Road, Rockwood, grew a “mushmelon” which weighed in at 21 3/4 pounds.
