Crop failiure!

This is all I could salvage from my cauliflower and romanesco crop!
I suppose a cheese sauce will be in order for sunday dinner with a morsel of chicken and arran pilot spuds! The leaves are in the compost!

The Heckington Show

Went on the day before it opened to help my mate George set up his entries, and didn't actually get the main show! He left me to set this one up whilst he concentrated on the others below!

This is the 57 varieties man who, over the years, has done displays with 57 different potatoes, weeds, etc. This year he has 57 different pelargonium! He was recently interviewed on local radio.

A bunch of basil!

Brought this bunch of basil home tonight, to see how it dries!

A bit of digging!

More than half way through the early spuds, and digging as I go! Decided to dig in all the old brassica leaves as well.

Autumn round the corner!

Digging and raking where my potatoes were. This will be for over wintering vegetables such as spring cabbage, onions, garlic etc.
Runner beans and carrots for dinner! This is the floral barrier betwixt strawberries and caulies; apparently they don't make good neighbours!

Just enough for me!

After a day watering and weeding, I took just sufficient for my needs.
Must google up how to do a rain dance!

Shirleys and ailsa craigs looking fairly good so far!
