An amateur gardener has managed to grow an incredible swan shaped cucumber.<br />
<br />
Mike Pullen decided in spring to throw caution to the wind and grow as much food as possible in his vegetable patch.<br />
<br />
Despite the risk of his food catching diseases by growing close to the ground he has produced a bumper crop of cucumbers, courgettes, carrots and potatoes.<br />
<br />
The 32-year-old from Hook, North Hampshire, has grown a series of strangely shaped cucumbers including one that is swan shaped. <br />
<br />
Mr Pullen had to cut the growing season short during spring as he had just moved to the area and was expecting his second child to be born.
