The Allotment Show


Friday 17 August was a VERY important day for the village allotmenteers as it was the annual allotment show, which is a great deal of fun and a chance to see what everyone else is producing and have a chat about all things veg and floral, hurrah!

Here are photos of our preparation – we put in entries for flowers, courgettes, beetroot and beans.

We also tried to see what our potatoes and autumn raspberries were like but, sadly, none of these were show-worthy.

Here are pictures of the produce and prizes at the show itself:

Sadly our flowers and beans failed at the first hurdle, LOL, but we gained 1st price for our round yellow courgettes in the Courgette competition, and 2nd price for our beetroot, hurrah! Well done to Sue for gaining Best Entry for some wonderful beans, and to Don for winning the cup for most points.

Now we have a lot of soup to make with our entries!

Have a lovely weekend
