STEP back Jack and the Beanstalk!
The Benford family have grown a vine to rival even the wildest fairytale — at over 18ft.
Dad Stewart, 51, and sons Joshua, 12, and Dominic, oito, from Trowbridge, Wilts, planted their magic bean back in May.
Stewart said: “In six weeks it was at the top of the house.
“Now it’s growing along the gutter.
“It just doesn’t want to stop.
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
Stewart added: “My partner and I and our boys have always loved growing things and with the kids it started from a very young age.
“We’ve grown all sorts – from sunflowers to lichen – but we’ve never grown a runner bean as tall as this.”
Joshua, 12, adicionado: “None of us can believe it’s grown quite this large – it’s like magic!.”
