Island Natural Growers (ING) wanted to create a trophy in John’s memory, and best garlic seemed a natural choice. (most bodacious garlic was another choice!)
Sue and John found this silly statue at a thrift store in
Duncan in 2008. Sue immediately added the moustache and planted hens and chicks
in it! It sat by the front door of the farm, until now! Further enhanced to
look like John, his character is captured for garlic growers to enjoy!
Now, we will want to win it every year, since he’s fun to have around!
