There are some gorgeous (and curious) photos on the Guardian website from the RHS Harvest Festival Show, which took place in the Horticultural Halls in London.  The shots are inspirational, although, as discussed before on these pages, I won’t be entering any ‘biggest vegetable’ competitions any time soon!

The competition for the biggest pumpkin was won by Stuart Paton’s 327kg (721.4lb) monster veg.

A selection of fabulously leggy carrots!

A gorgeous romanesco broccoli.
