WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A 28.6-pound cabbage grown by a central Wisconsin girl has won an annual statewide growing contest for third-graders.

The Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/1bwM4rp ) reports Riley Olbrantz of Newman Catholic Elementary School/St. Anne in Wausau was named the winner of this year’s Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program. She was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the program and a certificate of achievement.

Riley planted her winning vegetable, of the O.S. Cross cabbage variety, on April 14 and watered it every day until it was picked on July 29.

The Department of Agriculture says the cabbage still is being eaten and enjoyed by Riley’s neighbors.
