The show started at 2.00pm but the doors were open early for all the entries to register.
The first year we came to the show was a little strange, coming from Reading where there is nothing like this. We had only been in Devon for two months and it was one of the first times we had gone out as there was so much to do.
I managed to get in a take a few pictures as the entries started to come in.
This is the first year we have entered anything, obviously the royal ‘we’ as Michele did all the hard work. We did enter some of our apples, they are the tastiest apples and everyone has said how good they are. Unfortunately, apples don’t get tasted! Ours were the smallest there and our garden is stuffed with huge apples at the moment. Next year will will be prepared.
So Michele entered a banana loaf, some chutney, some of the girls eggs and blackberry jam.
Winning or not, it was a really enjoyable day which everybody seemed to enjoy.
The people who organise it did a fantatsic job again, every one of them a volunteer and giving so much time to put on this event.
