Encinitas Boy's 34-Pound Cabbage Nets Him College Money

Adin Eckerman, a student at Ocean Knoll Elementary School, will receive $1,000 for his winning cabbage.

An Encinitas 10-year-old got big cabbage for his big cabbage.

Adin Eckerman, a student at Ocean Knoll Elementary School, grew a 34-pound cabbage and submitted it to the National Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program. He was randomly selected to be California’s winner and will receive a $1,000 savings bond for college from Bonnie Plants, the company told Patch. 

The submission form shows his enjoyment for the project.

“Adin enjoyed watering his cabbage and watching it grow and grow...and grow. His mom is a garden teacher but Adin's Bonnie cabbage grew larger than any of hers. He became the garden star at home and around the neighborhood, where visitors of all ages stopped by to see his amazing mega cabbage.”
