Our fennel has come up trumps this year
Lots of it
Here it is with it's hair on. There's another dozen to be cropped.
We grew two short rows of different varieties and they both did well. Not only did they grow big, they haven't bolted yet ! But then it has been a good year for everything this year
|Seacale Beet, Fennel, Beetroot, French Beans, Sweetcorn and Runner Beans|
I can't grow cauliflowers, but courtesy of the beneficial conditions I have a good looking specimen. OK this is one out of a dozen, and the others were disappointing as normal., but hey, celebrations are in order.
(The bottle of wine is just to give a measure of size.. hic)
I would say that 2013 has been the best year for a decade.
