All in all a good day I picked up 6 trophies and awards and 60 quid in prize money which will buy the sand for my new stump bed which I have decided to build so I can grow more stumps as I do mot intend bothering with long carrots next year.
as for the judging I thought he did a good job apart from a couple of things which were Lettuces mine were perfect unblemished specimens and one managed third the first and second placed entries were scabby and moth eaten
the other thing I think he got wrong was awarding my
leeks best veg in members section I think he should have picked something else as the leeks were the ones I staged at huddersfield 2 weeks ago and the flags were discoloured but he is a leek man so that is probably why.
