This year's tickets

I have taken a piccie of the tickets and trophies I won this year as this was my first year of trying to grow veg for the showbench as opposed to just for eating. I did okay but hope to improve dramatically next year by being a bit better organised and putting into practice all the tips and hints that I have picked up from fellow growers and also from the NVS forum.

I am going to attend the NVS Scottish Branch Seminar in November where we will hear talks by Peter Glazebrook on growing both heavy and quality onions and by Jim Pearson on growing cauliflowers for showing.
For those who don't know, Peter Glazebrook recently broke the world record for the heaviest onion, growing a moster that weighed in at 18lbs, and Jim Pearson is well reknowned for winning lots of tickets with superb cauliflowers and I hope I will take some of their knowledge home with me and translate that into better quality specimens
