Wasilla's claim to fame: world record cabbages!

Wasilla's 2011 prize-winning cabbageNot long ago few people had heard of the small town of Wasilla, Alaska. But it was in the news in 2009 for producing a world record cabbage, weighing 127 pounds (57 kg). At this year’s Alaska State Fair the same Wasilla cabbage grower hoped to break his own record with the “behemoth” pictured here, but, as the Anchorage Daily News reports, its weight fell a few ounces “shy” of the 2009 record.

Oh, and Wasilla, in “the Bible Belt of Alaska”, is also the home of an obscure former governor of Alaska called Sarah Palin. But no one remembers her any more.
