“Oh ... what a beautiful potato!”

These were the words when Micah Theron (5) found a heart shaped potato in a bag. Now all she wishes to do is to plant it to have “many more beautiful heart shaped potatoes.”

Her mother Lagenay Theron said Micah was helping her granny to cook and was asked to fetch potatoes out of a bag.

“She was amazed when she saw the heart shaped potato. She did not want her granny to cook it.

“She still has the potato with her and even took it to school,” said Lagenay.

Micah is in Grade R at Uitenhage Primary and will celebrate her 6th birthday tomorrow!
