This is like 'Show and Tell' at school, only in my case it really is 'Show'.
We had a really good afternoon at the show. As we were busy here on Saturday morning with my eldest son coming to help Lovely Hubby get the net tunnel finished off, we had to go and stage the entries on Friday night. I had my fingers firmly crossed for not to much droopage!!
But when we got to the show at around 2pm yesterday we were greeted with the sight of lots of winners cards on our produce ... yay :-)

So I managed seven Seconds in the Vegetable Classes
A Second in the Liqueur Class and ...
Six Firsts in the Vegetable Classes.
So a very successful first showing at the Llanrwst Show, and very profitable too, as there is prize money attached to each win, which I totally forgot about until I was presented with a big envelope full of little envelopes all containing money. I came away with £19.50 :-)
After the prizegiving we had a quick whizz around the showground, watched the Tug of War finals, a trick bike demonstration, and made one or two visits to the Beer Tent, the men had freshly made hot lamb buns and beef burgers, and we all finished the day with whopping big icecreams before heading back to the Vegetable Tent to pick up all the vegetables and pack them away to take home.
Once there I set out all my cards for the photographs and made us a tea using the fruits of our labours followed by a Rhubarb Crumble ... well you can't let prize winning rhubarb go droopy now can you. ;-)
All in all a brilliant day.
Now it's back to work on the net tunnel ..... I have a bit of sewing to do!!
