Today is the annual show at the allotment. We have a ‘fun day’ including a vegetable and flower show. Everyone is welcome to enter and all of the produce is auctioned off at the end of the day, proceeds of which all go to the allotment. We are still raising money for out new toilet so any money made today will go towards that.
Checked over the vegetables still growing and cut and prepared them for the show. Some vegetables such as the potatoes and onions have been out a while and just needed cleaning and preparing.
We entered the following into the show:
A small posy of Asters. The judge highly recommended these.
Our largest remaining cucumber. We won second prize for this
In the ‘Other Veg’ category we entered a fennel. This also won second prize
Onions - we didn’t get a prize for these as we didn’t string the tops as per judging requirements. We have done this in previous years but the heavy rains at the time of lifting started to rot the stems so we cut them so they would store better
Potatoes. We won second prize for these too.
We didn’t enter a top tray this year preferring to enter into individual categories instead
