The Allotment Wife

Allotment Show Success!


We had an amazing time at yesterday evening’s allotment show and the party afterwards was fabulous too (thank you to the lovely H for making us all welcome)!

Here are pics of us preparing the show harvest at the allotment:


Here are our slightly panic-stricken preparations at home (oh no, only 2 hours to go and we have NO STRING or VASES!!):

Here are some of the wonderful entries at the show, prior to judging:

And here are the prizewinners! –

Amazing, K and I were awarded six (six!!!) certificates as below:

1st for Courgettes, 1st for Onions, 2nd for Soft Fruit (autumn raspberries), 2nd for Beetroot, 2nd for Flowers (dahlias) and 3rd for Flowers (coreopsis).


We are just so thrilled, and it’s such a BRILLIANT start to our anniversary weekend – 23 years married on Sunday!

Have a FABULOUS weekend, everyone, and keep gardening!
