The site produce show and picnic we held in September 2014 proved very successful. We were lucky to have two external judges, Karen Jacks, the PCA chair, and Sue Hulme, a local gardener. There were entries in some 50 categories including flowers, fruit and vegetables, jams and preserves, honey, photos taken on the site and the tallest sunflower. There was also a children’s category for an imagined garden. The Ludski-Lees were the overall winners, with Charles Vaughan-Jones second and the Hamills, who’ve had their plots for only a short time, third.
After the judging was finished we had a picnic with many plotholders bringing along food they’d made to share. We were lucky that the weather was warm and sunny for the picnic. Prizes were awarded for first, second and third in each category and winners were given vouchers to spend at the trading hut.
