Then I trimmed up the beets and the shallots, fetched a few extra cherry tomatoes to use in case one dropped or split.And then I lined them all up on the stairs for their class photo before packing them into bushel baskets .
When I arrived I discovered that in my haste on Monday, I had failed to reserve a place for of all things Red Tomatoes. Grrrrr. But my disappointment was soon set aside as I greeted other vegetable enthusiasts. “How did you manage such lovely okra?” “Oh you would not believe. We use old black bait barrels and put them up against the south side of the house and cover them in black seaweed mulch.” Or “What lovely yellow wax beans.” “Thank you. There would have been more, but my father broke his leg last night.”
Now it is all in the hands of the judges. Should have a report by the end of the day.
