We did brilliantly at the Tideswell Allotment Show on 30 August – we came away with 6 PRIZES!

FIRST PRIZE – Courgettes SECOND PRIZE – Runner beans, Basket of Vegetables, Marrow THIRD PRIZE – Peas, 3 Veg Display

So that means £11 in prize money to go towards something for the garden.

We also had a Kitchen Garden Display at the Show which attracted interest, especially the photos – the basket of vegetables from the display went to auction at the end of the day, along with most of the exhibits. There were lots of really good bargains to be had at the end of the Show – prize winning vegetables, flowers, cakes, jam that had all been donated by the exhibitors – if you missed this year, make sure to go next year, something not to be missed.

And now back in the garden, the lovely September weather has given all the plants a good boost, so we’ve still got produce to harvest, and the poppies go on and on. Our next Garden Work Party is on Sunday, 5 October starting at 11am, join us if you can, even if it’s just for a chat.

If you would like to become involved in any way with the garden please call Maureen (871542) or Judy (872408). And visit Tideswell Kitchen Garden Facebook Page to see how we get on throughout the year.
