I have also been experimenting with Caulis for my collection of 6 at harrogate I have been sowing 10 per week for the last ten weeks with the hope of hitting the show with at least one good un. we are now eating the first batch both White and Purple the ones in the photo have gone over a bit but that is just down to having too many to eat at once.The Purple ones are for a class of 2 caulis other than white also at Harrogate.
I have cleaned back all the dead skins on my Quality onions today as they are nearing the size I require the idea is to let them go another few days for the ridges to grow out from where the outer layers have been removed the majority are around 17" circumference and I will start harvesting as they reach 17 1/2"
Dan reckons this should be just right for the 1 to 1.5 kilo class
the giant tomatoes grown from seed Dan sent me are looking like mutants and would not win any prizes for good looks but they are intended to be only for weight
Mt corn is romping along with all the cobs now fertilised it is a case of making sure every little strand that comes from the start of a cob gets pollinated if not you will have blank patches in your cobs.
I have placed 4 Carmen plants in tubs and intend to grow them up the hoops on the tunnel so that the fruits hang down and do not get marked.
I also had a visitor today
