The Panel speaks to the giant pumpkin paddler

From The Panel, 6:52 pm on 17 April 2024

Adam Farquharson always wanted to paddle down a river in a giant pumpkin, but his pumpkins kept dying before getting big enough. Imagine his delight when his friend grew a 407kg one!

It was the largest pumpkin grown in Australia this year, and Adam paddled it down the Tumut river in Australia over the weekend.
