It would be lovely if we could show off our harvests, but rather than have 20 million posts just use one big one, its lovely to show off what we have collected

I'll show you mine, if you show me yours  :tongue2: sounds rather rude doesnt it  :blush:









Roast dinner on the menu tonight  :D

Harvested my onions from sets today. Probably the best ever. Variety is "Centurion".

A few of them:



All of them:



Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Nice size & shape - are they still a bit green to have a taste? Im still looking for something that tastes right to grow next year.

Not tasted them yet, and won't be doing until they're well dry! (About next July the way this weather's going). Still using up the winter onions.

Agree about the shape - I hate those with flat bottoms where you waste half the onion chopping the root off!

As usual I fell for the write up at the local nursery, which said it had high yields and excellent flavour. At least the first one's right!

I am so glad somebody elses garlic is only spring onion sized.  Mine were planted in October so should have 'suffered' the necessary cold spell.  Will speak to Colin at the Garlic  Festival next weekend as to what went wrong.

No pics from me - my rechargable batteries are finally no longer rechargeable. But Im very proud of myself so bear with my story (or not!)

Second year of plot - first year did well on peas, beans and swede and not much else of note. Been ill with Crohns this year so missed a month of vital growing time, and have been playing catch up since then.

Our next door neighbours Bill and Brenda - both in their eighties - have had it rough recently. Bill has had a hip replacement and been diagnosed with cancer, Brenda has also had a new hip and probs with her back

Anyway - to cut a boringly long story short.  Brenda used to Dig For Victory back in the war, and has always taken a keen interest in my plot stories.  Today was the first time Ive been able to take them round a 'veg box'. They had garlic, onions, spuds, courgettes, cabbage, lettuce, herbs and carrots with plenty more to come.  Their faces were fantastic.  Best ever day Ive had with my produce, and I thought I was a tight wad!

"I think the carrot infinitely more fascinating than the geranium. The carrot has mystery. Flowers are essentially tarts. Prostitutes for the bees. There is, you'll agree, a certain je ne sais quoi oh so very special about a firm young carrot" Withnail and I

Garlic looks a bit green, Mick. Has it cloved yet?

All looks good though.

Yeah Dave, they've all cloved! There are some 'normal sized cloves' under that pile somewhere! lol! I pulled both the onions and the Garlic up earlier than I would have liked as with all this rain things had started to rot and I got a wee bit scared! lmao!! I thought best have some small bits than rotted bits  ???
