My first show!!
« on: September 13, 2010, 09:38 »

Well for a bit of fun we entered our first show this last weekend.
Fantastic fun, got a 2nd for marrow, and a third for "5 veg" and was well chuffed...

The best mileage so far has come from the fact that I'm the man who grew the marrow that beat the marrow (into 3rd place) that beat the marrow (into 3rd place) of one of the old boys on our plot, when he was at last weeks show. Huge amusement on the plot, and vows of "wait until next year"!!

Great fun getting brown envelopes with 20/30p in, course, there were some pros there, FANTASTIC veg from them, but we had so much fun.

Only downside was getting 2 "NAS" (not as scheduled) when I put some great peppers into the "fruit" classes, and apparently, they still count as a veg...hoho!!

Phill  :) :)
