Alness Show 2012

Well, I managed to get some exhibits together for Alness Show and benched the on Saturday morning before heading off to work. In all I benched 9 exhibits and came away with 5 red cards and 3 blue ones, so I was very pleased, especially as these were basically the last of my show veg for the year. I got red cards for my Peas (which I was very pleased to win and even more pleased at the comments on how good they were from much more experienced growers than myself),

Runner Beans, (though there were a couple of iffy ones on my board if I do say so myself)

 Broad Beans,

 Potatoes (white)

and long beetroot.- which i somehow managed to miss taking a photo of.

I also won a red card for Sweet Peas (which I entered and staged on behalf of Scotsburn Garden - see my other blog). That's our entry at the rear (12 blooms)

I got blue cards for my parsnips (I did manage to get three that were okay), my potatoes (coloured) and my cauliflower.
There were some excellent exhibits at this show, just a few of which you can see below
