30th Annual Allotment Show 2018 Part II – The Results!

Following on from my previous post (30th Annual Allotment Show 2018 Part 1 – The Judging – do have a read if you’d like to hear what goes into entering this kind of village event!) I have placed below the full list of all the categories I entered and where I placed. Largely for my own reference in future years, but also because I’m really proud of my achievements! I hope it may inspire any growers among you to consider taking part in your own local shows.
