Winning at the Allotment Show

We’ve had the annual allotment flower and vegetable show. As we are a pretty small site the show is more about having fun rather than taking the competition seriously.

The only exhibits which I had planned ahead was the classes ‘Best Victoria Sponge’ and ‘Vegetable or Fruit Based Drink’ which I did Elderberry Cordial, another classes I entered were dependant on what was available on the day. Therefore I entered ‘Plate of 5 Potatoes’ and ‘Dish of Stone Fruit’.


Best Victoria Sponge – 1st
Vegetable or Fruit Based Drink – Elderberry Cordial – 2nd
Dish of Stone Fruit – Plums – 2nd
Plate of 5 Potatoes – 2nd

Fun for All

In addition to the flower and vegetable show we had snail races and duck races plus BBQ, raffle and auction. It really was a great day to have fun and meet new plot holders.

  4. I hate to admit that I had to look up what Victoria Sponge is.
    Soft cake slices with jam in between?
    Well, that sounds like a decent use of jam, which I don’t normally eat!
