It's getting near to the village show time of year again and if anyone would like to have a bash, I can assure you it's really good fun.
This is a slideshow of one near to me, where I sometimes judge.
Hope its not yet, i have only just barely got flowers on my beans.
Looks fab David. I'd love to have a go but don't know if I've got the nerve to do it
Believe it or not, one of my biggest successes is with my Victoria Sponge......and those WI sorts really don't like it up em.
Seriously, the standard is nothing like Chelsea or Hampton Court....just enter a few roses or sweet peas....you'll need a show schedule though.
What about your potatoes OL. They looked great. We don't seem to have shows like that around here unfortunately.
Hmm Lesley, potatoes all in my tummy
David, I used to raise money for a charity with my Vic sponge, I used to make them and people would donate,mi raised about £500 altogether and have been told they are very good (not my words someone else's).
I can also make jam and chutney....hmmm......maybe ??
Bekkie........"what produce will you be showing at the village fair?" No innuendos there

What will you be showing David? There is no way of writing that without it sounding like an inuendo! ;p
Last year I came first with my tomatoes in the redcurrant class.

If only I were so modest! ....I would say that it helps that I make my own raspberry jam from my own grown raspberries.
Well if I hadn't been kind and let the birds eat my raspberries I might be able to.....blackberries will be ready soon though And I do have a pot of my strawberry jam left
