Columbus Sweet Potato King

Willie Cochran has grown a collection of characters he has been saving since harvest season late last year.

Columbus, Georgia gardener Willie Cochran really out did himself this time.

He puts out a garden most every year at his Columbus home but this time he grew some things which are attracting a lot of attention.

His family and neighbors have been raving about a sweet potato he dug that looks like a duck.

There is another one that looks like a swan and another one looks like a little bird.

His wife Clementine contacted first news to get their remarkable story out before the famous sweet potato begins to go bad or gets consumed.

Willie says he plans to put in more sweet potatoes next year.
