Old Road Farmer Reaps 50 lb Pumpkins

Lennie JosiahAntigua St. John's - After farming for over 40 years, Lennie Josiah is reaping the benefits.

Last week, on a farm in Old Road near Claymont estate, better known as Spring Piece, he reaped several Pumpkins weighing 48 to 50 pounds.

Mr. Josiah tells the secret of how he got such a giant pumpkins.

“Two years ago, I visited San Fernando, Trinidad, and purchased pumpkins while I was there on my trip. I brought the seeds back to Antigua, planted them and I have been reaping the benefits since.”

Mr. Josiah also spoke of using manure from his sheep as fertilizer, which he believes is another reason for the 50 pound pumpkins.

Antiguans are natural geniuses share the knowledge with the youth. Our government need to stop using Human waste and use Goat Chit.


Food For Thought.

Another JOSIAH!!!!!!! Last year Austin Josiah reaped a pumpkin as heavy as 45 pounds. Now Lennie Josiah this year has gone up to 50 pounds. Is it a matter of DNA or coincidence? Maybe it is a sign that the JOSIAH's are slated to feed the nation. Keep at it Josiah Family.
