Well here is another helping from my garden. Like every where else Morayshire has had its share of cold wet weather which has held everything back. My hopes of getting any quality veg ready for the NVS Scottish Branch Show at Kelso on the 26th of August have all but disappeared. Some of this has been down to the weather but I have to admit there is a fair amount of it down to me not being well enough organised. That being said I have not given up hope all together and the 26th is still nearly 8 weeks away.
Here is my Parsnips (Polar). you may remember that after sowing they were then covered by 5inch of snow. The foliage is about 14 inches and I'm hoping I will get some for my local show on the second week of September
I've got a whole bed of Cauliflowers like this one. I had hoped they would be ready for Kelso. But I think I might be a little early with them. If that is the case I have a show on the 11th of August. The plants are 2ft apart so that gives you some Idea of the size they are now. As you will notice I have them under enviromesh to keep them clear of butterflys etc.
This is some of my Pablo beet root. The plants in the fore ground have only recently been singled whilst the plants in the background are growing on strongly and I have hopes of getting some ready for possibly early August.
This is one of my Stump root carrot beds. These were also covered in snow and took almost 4 wks to germinate. However as you can see are now growing strongly but will not be big enough for the NVS show at kelso. In the fore ground is some more beet root.
Here is a close up of the sweet candle, it is about the thickness of my index finger.
