I am gradually assembling pictures of
interest from the vegetable garden. Click on the text
to see them:
Beans - seven types; all
ready at once: French, Majorcan, climbing and runner
Beans - Majorcan climbing
The pink beans on the right of the picture breed true; the larger
ones (white and mottled) have crossed with
English runners (Czar) and probably won't.
Broccoli and calabrese
Firm stakes essential: 30 May 04
Broccoli, purple sprouting -you need big plants for a good crop.
Courgette x Pumpkin - texture of pumpkin, flavour of courgette
Courgette x pumpkin, cut through
We planted the seeds from this, but none germinated.
Courgettes - yellow and green types
Cucumber, yellow -milder flavour than the common type.
Cucumbers -sliced, green and yellow
Custard Marrow - with a hint of cross pollination -it's green
Custard Marrow - "Custard White"
Potato, Shetland Black- floury potato with a blue ring under the skin
Potato, Congo Black - the flowers
Potato, Maris Piper - the flowers
Potato, seedling - interesting tubers from self pollinated salad blue
Pumpkin, miniature yellow- more a squash than a pumpkin
Excellent flavoured squash which retains texture on cooking.
Squash -Turk's Turban
Another squash which doesn't collapse on cooking.
Tomatoes shaped like bananas
These tomatoes are not so sharp in taste as ordinary red tomatoes.
Tomatoes -"Banana" & "normal"

- more varieties, all grown in 2003.
