    Oh Wow!! Congrats to all who won and placed anywhere! I was bowled over when I spotted a 2nd place on the 3 spuds, then amazed when I spotted another 2nd place for 3 onions, then totally chuffed to bits when I spotted 2 firsts, for the rhubarb and cukes, plus a 3rd place for the garlic!! Made up now, my whoops brought Mr D running from the kitchen to see what was wrong! Lol!

    Thanks to all the team who organised, ran and judged the competition, well done to you all! Can we have another for next year please?

      Can't believe I got first with my onions, I only grew about a dozen in all! Well done to everyone who entered and thanks to those who did the judging.
      I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!

        congrats to everyone involved, either entering or organising, a great deal of fun. I love seeing everyones efforts and it just goes to show that you don't have to grow things to veg show standards to be a part of it, just look at some of my efforts

                      Good job it's only for fun eh Seahorse, just think what it would be like if this lot took it seriously

                      Well done all and remember that it's the people that don't win that make the show and the winners make it just that bit better

                      ( and before you ask I didn't enter so it don't apply to me)
                      Never be afraid to try something new.

                          Same here... I'm so pleased, especially as this is my first year growing. OH laughed at me taking photos of everything, but I'm so glad I did. Thanks to the organisers and everyone who entered and well done to everyone who placed.
