My Sunday Photo - Week 143 Q is for Quirky, Queer and Quality

Peter and I visited the Autumn Show at the 3 Counties Show Ground in Malvern on Saturday. We lived in Malvern prior to emigrating and attended all the shows there every year, usually with kids, parents and friends. 

This year, our first time back in 7 years, it was just the 2 of us and we had great fun exploring without having to meet the needs of others and spent way too much time in the wonky and giant veg tent wondering if any of this when grown to this size actually tastes as good as the normal sized ones and who the hell has the patience or the tools needed to peel and cook it all.

  1. Hi Suzanne, I bet it was nice revisiting the autumn show, just the two of you. I have wondered about the taste of overgrown veg myself. From experience I know that smaller swede taste far better than larger ones and are much less woody.

    1. it's hard enough as it is trying to peel a normal size swede, wouldn't know where to start with one so large

  2. Some of those parsnips (I think!) remind me of those living vegetable things in Harry Potter.
    I would totally have spent ages in that tent too.

  6. I love wobbly veg to look at but to be honest I prefer the smooth ones to peel #MySundayPhoto

    1. I agree, a normal swede is hard enough to peel as it is
