Baskets of vegetables were allocated a space of eight sq.ft for all the exhibits, on the same table as Turf which had sixteen sq ft ( there were only two entries)
|We grow lots of different herbs, but Sage Rosemary and parsley won out.|
|Ours are the ones with the blue card.|
What we both found surprising was the cheating! The rules state that produce and flowers must be grown by the exhibitor, yet there were lettuce clearly straight from Lidl, the type that are grown together in a square cube that you put in water to keep fresh, they received second prize, well done Lidl! Flowers must be from your own garden, again several displays came straight from a florist shop, the flowers I mean rather than the arrangement. I wonder if this sort of thing happens in the UK, I know it didn't used to. I cant see the point in entering any competition if it's not from your own effort.
All in all it was a good day and well worth doing from a financial point of view, no doubt the money will be spent on the garden.
|All in all a good result.|
