Let’s Take A Moment To Remember That Snoop Dogg Got High With A Welsh Farmer Who Grew A Giant Vegetable

Basically, I was talking to someone and I just wanted to confirm that this did actually happen and I wasn’t dreaming, and I wasn’t.

1. Right, so there’s this 71-year-old man called Ian Neale, who’s a farmer from Newport.

Here he is with a giant marrow that weighs 50.5 kg and is almost the size of him.

2. Giant vegetables are his thing. He holds several records in the field of giant vegetable growing.

Here’s Snoop Dogg, the rapper responsible for such albums as Doggystyle, Tha Doggfather, and Doggumentary, asking Neale to come backstage to his show in Cardiff, “because I do vegetation myself, and I want to know your secret”.

7. Anyway, here is an important update. Last year, Neale broke his own record for a giant swede.

So two months ago he invited Snoop Dogg to Cardiff to see his vegetables again. It appears the rapper didn’t take him up on the offer.

8. Snoop, come back and see Ian. And his giant vegetable-growing entourage.
