    Default Gardener digs up five-fingered carrot

    A gardener got his own unique five-a-day in one go after digging up a hand-shaped carrot complete with five fingers.
    The bizarre 'carrot claw' was grown by Peter Jackson, 66, in the garden of his home in Shropshire.
    But Peter thought nothing more of the wacky-shaped vegetable and merely took a picture before proceeding to cook it, much to surprise of his daughter Lindsay.

    Hands up for the carrot. The five-fingered vegetable which was grown in Shropshire

    Lindsay, 42, a chef from Condover, Shropshire, joked whether the hand might count as all of her 'five a day' in one go.

    She said: 'We couldn't believe it, it was quite a shock to see a carrot perfectly shaped like a hand.

    'You'd think that with me being a chef and my dad a gardener, we might have come across something this strange before - but we never have.

    'My dad just seemed to make some joke about it being 'handy', took a picture and then I think they just ate it. He played it all down, but that's just the way dad is.

    "We've not had anything weird since - no arms or legs to go with it. I don't think his garden is trying to build a carrot man. Now that would really be unusual.

    'It was just one of those one-off freak of nature occurrences - but isn't it funny?'

    Peter, who is a semi-retired gardener, has three vegetable plots in his large garden, in a leafy part of Shropshire.
    He said that throughout his years of gardening, he had never seen anything quite like his 'carrot claw'.
