hiya jamima well done for entering your 1st show ,i can only comment about the runner beans they need to be the straightest ones you have got and however many it stipulates in the agenda plus they all need to be the same length or as near as damit ,the jam someone wiser will be along shortly

 
If the early bird gets the worm how come the 2nd mouse to the trap gets the cheese ??

Pick them with a bit of stalk. Try not to handle them too much so that they retain as much natural bloom as possible. Certainly do not wash them.

Well done Jamima, at least you got something and second is very good.  Mr Mole says wasn't there a class you could have put Phil in to win you something.   :D
