Logan - I checked and there was nothing for sale other than raffle tickets at ours. The lady organiser said that people can 'show' crafts and put a contact card by them, but they don't allow selling. She said that they would probably allow it at larger shows though. 

Show Time!

Well that was brilliant fun! I came in with three thirds, five seconds and three firsts!! Absolutely chuffed to bits! The cock got a second!! 

Thanks so much for all of the good luck messages!! They worked!! 

Some of the entries were amazing. There really are some fab gardeners out there. I've got so much to learn.

Well done Chrissy! That's brilliant! I hope your cup is taking pride of place!

It's nearly time! Pickles and Preserves Class - done. Cakes and Biscuits Class - done. Just the Flowers Class and the Fruit & Vegetable Class to sort out in the morning. Better set my alarm clock pretty early!

Anyone else got a show tomorrow? They seem to be going on in all our surrounding villages too. Can't wait!



Anyone done any gardening today?

Got to love a bargain!

I've been out to anxiously check my cucumbers for the village show tomorrow. Also have the perfect little truss of gardenes delights tomatoes. I just hope they don't split between now and tomorrow morning! I'm meant to be working from home today but keep sneaking out for a quick check of everything!
