|Leek dressed to impress!|
The temperature may be dropping but there's still lots of harvesting to be done...
apples are ripening,
leeks are fat and ready,
lettuces are still hearting,
fennel is going to seed,
onions are being dried,
and there's still beetroot, kale and lots of other goodies to bring to the table.
Over the weekend I visited the City of Belfast Autumn Flower (and Veg) Show. It was quite a small show but lots of effort had noticeably gone into it. Of course it was pouring rain the day I attended, but I still really enjoyed viewing all the fantastic displays.
Here are some of my favourite photos, from the Northern Ireland Vegetable Association (NIVA) display - and what a lovely display it was!
|Lots of herbs, veg, and fruit displayed very carefully by the NIVA team!|
|One of the NIVA members made a 'market cart' to display their prize fruit and veg, costing £50 in wood (excluding the wheels) and excluding labour provided in-kind. It looked lovely!|
|Eye catching preserves, edible flowers and herbs decorated the top of the display cart.|
|Congrats to the Northern Ireland Vegetable Association (NIVA) on a great display and what looks to be a great harvest year.|
