New Sands Allotment Show
I was judge today at the New Sands Allotments Annual Show. New Sands is in Swalwell, just a few km from where I live. The show was held at the Sun pub. In the past I have swapped produce with some of the allotment holders and sold some of them ducks.
There were no individual competitions for different vegetables. Instead, each allotment holder entered a tray of produce and the judging was on all of the contents as a whole.
So congratulations to the winners and commiseration to those who did not come first, second or third. The contents of the boxes were sold after the show to raise funds for flower beds and planting in Swalwell.
