- 5 Bush tomatoes - we didn't win. Our tiny toms looked a bit sad wobbling around on a white paper plate!
- 5 Dwarf French beans - a winner. Our first French beans of the year too!
- Longest runner bean - mine was over 30cm, but the winner was substantially longer!
- 5 Carrots - I think we won this because we left the full leafy tops on
- Any other vegetable - I had a big yellow Patty Pan squash. Looked pretty and won!
- Selection of any four veg - Got a 'highly commended' (loser) sticker for my beetroot, colourful chard leaf, purple mangetout and Rondo-carrot. It looked colourful, but Neal's display looked much better.
- Funny shaped fruit/veg - our mutant Desiree potato won that one for us!
I was going to put an entry in for chutney but didn't get my act together, so I'll save that for the Hungerford Food Festival next month. There were plenty of jars of pickles and jams though and the flowers were lovely.
We unfortunately couldn't attend the prize-giving and auction so I'm not sure who won best in show. I hope it was a plotholder!
|This was our haul of Chopin potatoes from about 5 plants - many more had slug damage |
(they're not the winning carrots by the way!)
