Because I have had such a bad year with the veg, I have decided to concentrate on showing mainly things from the greenhouse. The first show was yesterday at a village about 4 miles down the road from me and I didnt do too bad The standard fuchsia, Angel Pelegonium and Begonia all won first prize in their class.







This yellow Begonia was unplaced, which rather surprised me because I thought it was my best exhibit. It just goes to show that you can't second guess the judges.



Sets a low standard and fails to achieve it.

My second and final show was last Saturday. Once again because my veg were rubbish I mainly showed pot plants. :blush: I did manage to get 2nd place with a cabbage, no photo though because we ate half of it with our Sunday dinner.
This onion came in at 4lbs 10oz but could only make 2nd place. The winner was nearly a full two pounds heavier.



These two Pelergoniums came 1st and 2nd





And once again the judges surprised me by not placing this white zonal. I thought it was a much better plant than the one I actually won with.
