snake gourdVayalar: Nature lovers are flocking the vegetable garden of N A Krishnan of Thokilukad near Vayalar to have a glimpse of the seven-feet-long snake gourd.

The vegetable is still growing and since it has already touched the ground, Krishnan has dug small holes on the ground for it to grow.

All the vegetables are grown organically. Apart from snake gourd, tapioca, cucumber, sweet potato, long beans, ash gourd, pumpkin and spinach are being cultivated in his garden.

Krishnan, who is a farmer for the past 30 years, waters his plants by fetching water from a pond. He does both summer and monsoon farming.
