FYI

Clicking on any of the pictures will open them at full size in the browser window, which means you will have to use the 'back' button to return to the main pages, whereas clicking to the left or right of any picture will open them in a new window, if you fancy a closer look at any of the piccies we've posted! We've included a Google Earth satelite picture of our plots and this years planting plan at the bottom of the page, next to each other. If you choose the Earth view on the satelite image you can rotate the image until it is lined up with the planting plan, then use the arrows in the plan to scroll from Plot 2 to Plot 1.

GYO Grapevine Virtual Veg Show results + Newly barked paths!

So, the results of the GYO Magazine's Grapevine Forum Virtual Veg Show were announced recently, and we managed to do better than last years two 2nd places!! Below are the piccies of our entries, and where they placed!
These 2 Cucumbers got us a First Place!

3 Stalks of Rhubarb - this got us our second First Place!
These 3 Onions got us a 2nd Place!
These 3 spuds got us a Second Place!

These 3 Bulbs of Garlic got us a 3rd Place!
So, all in all, 2 firsts, 2 seconds and a third, not bad at all! Especially when you consider we only entered those five categories!!

For the full thread and a great place to visit, follow the link below to the Grapevine!


So, the growing season is over and the time to tidy up and prepare for next year is now upon us! Today we managed to get to the plot for most of the day, Lee clearing another bed and having a fire before clearing the smaller greenhouse, whilst I tidied up a bit, then weeded and barked up about a third of the beds on plot 1! (Lee helped with the chippings too, once he'd finished in the greenhouse!)
So, as can be seen, the bark chippings do make the place look a lot tidier, as does the work Lee did with the celery (tieing and earthing it up yesterday)! Plenty more work to do before spring, but plenty of time to do it in, so no rush as yet!

Hope you're preparation and tidying up is going well! Thanks for reading!
