New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Posted: 16/07/2016 at 20:31

Scroggin , try and go to a local show you may be pleasantly surprised , that's what we did and thought some of ours are just as good as those on display , obviously not the County or National shows , we are definaetly  not in that league and quite frankly would not want to put in that sort of time 

It is nice taking part , the Veg judge always stays and is happy for you to aso him questions 

What is your weather like?
