Saughton Veg Crops
Just thought we would share a couple of images of some of the beautiful produce coming from the Caley veg beds at Saughton.
In the Caley Demonstration Garden we have a number of raised beds in which we grow produce to be used onsite by the Garden Bistro. We recently thinned our carrots and ended up with a crop of delicious, sweet baby carrots in a rainbow of colours.
In our Teaching Garden we have been growing an wide variety of crops. These are looked after by a group of our student members who are gaining experience in vegetable growing. Max is very fond of growing potatoes and tends to them diligently. Last week, he harvested a lovely looking bucketful of ‘Vivaldi’ potatoes. Vivaldi can be grown as a second early crop or left in the ground as a maincrop potato. Often cited as being lower in carbohydrates than other potatoes and therefore containing fewer calories, all we can say about them is that they taste delicious.
