Progress and countdown to local show
With my local show this coming Saturday where I will be benching 40+ exhibits it will be quite hectic for the rest of the week I have been measuring and selecting leeks today making sure i leave the best for harrogate. also for the last few days I have been cutting runner and prince beans as they reach the required size these have then been sorted in to sets wrapped in damp kitchen roll and stored in the fridge ready for the show I have around 20 prince beans at 20cm and should be able to make 2 cracking sets of 6 plus 2 sets of 6 runners and hopefully a further set of runners for the top tray.it is also possible to straighten them as long as you do not use too much force.
On a less positive note one of my quality onions has decided to start rotting in the neck good job I have plenty to go at.
