Please forgive the boastful nature of this post! But I just had to share about our allotment show the other weekend. Our allotment is at best fruitful but rather untidy as we cannot give it as much time as we'd like. However, we keep it ticking over and enjoy making things with what it produces.
My mother-in-law persuaded us to enter some of our strawberry jam into the jam class at the show and convinced my eldest Whitething to make a Victoria Sponge for the cake class. We duly did, not thinking much of it as we were away camping for the weekend and wouldn't be there.
Well, imagine our surprise when we heard the results!
Our jam came second in it's class and the cake came first!
Whitething no.1 (age 10) was chuffed to bits as she had beaten all the other adult competitors to take the first prize!
Needless to say we and especially Granny are very proud of her! And very tasty it was too!
