Greg Becker's personal visual record of the triumphs and trials of an artist, illustrator and vegetable gardener.
What better than, in failing to win a special flowerpot, one lands a special mention and the tantalising thought that, one day, maybe, with due concentration . . . there may, one day, with . . . be a Montgomery snail?!(In a pot.)EstherP.S. Glad to see a prize dandelion. While not exactly veg. . . . dandelions are undervaluedly beautiful.
Yes, there may be a Montgomery snail (a so far undocumented species), the next competition could even be called 'spot the Montgomery snail'. There are quite a few possibilities for testing peoples allotment/gardening knowledge, but I think in future I will certainly avoid anything that can be confused with blobs of paint.
Well done Allot of Veg. I'm now booking a long overdue trip to the opticians.
Phil, you were very close, only one or two out and I think the eyesight problem was mine.
Thank you very much for my prize flower pot. I was very happy to see the frog-in-residence, he is now adorning the shed wall as a warning to any slugs thinking of causing trouble in the salad beds.J
Congrats to the winner.I need to go and get my eyes tested now.
yes Shaheen you were quite generous with your golf ball spotting, but I hope you will not be discouraged and try again in the next competition (not sure when that will be) hopefully with your nephew as well.
