Blog Competition

Els over in the Netherlands ( don't ask me it's Dutch) has suggested a Going Gently " Trelawnyd Flower Show" competition on the back of the fact that " The Great British Bake Off"  is back on tv next week.
She suggested that bloggers photograph a baking creation of their own , which they could send me
( jgsheffield@hotmail.com)..the best entry would be judged by myself ( of course)
Well this got me thinking
And so, I propose a slightly altered version of this idea

And so
Bloggers, readers and hangers on...please send me a photo of your own " NOVELTY VEGETABLE"
The veg creation has to be all your own work, and not just a nicked photo from google!
To give you an example of the standard I am looking for, please look at the winning entry from last year's show
I will print out all the entries and will ask the veg judge at the Flower Show to mark them for a bit of fun
Any entries will be displayed at the show itself for all the whole village to view
A prize will be given for first and second place!
So dig out your imagination and your cucumbers and get to work......
I will show all entries on Going Gently as and when they come in
Good luck............
All entries have to be submitted by Wednesday 6th Aug

  5. I've always fancied producing a sausage with a suitably inappropriate 'serving suggestion' photo on the wrapping. 'You know what you can do with that, don't you?', etc.

  16. Ok a question: does this include pre and post digestion photo's, of vegetables? Important question, because post digestion would entail some other, ahem, things. Let's review what happens to vegetable....

    The GI tract starts with the mouth and proceeds to the esophagus, stomach, small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileum), and then to the large intestine (colon), rectum, and terminates at the anus. You could probably say the human body is just like a big donut. The GI tract is the donut hole.
    So, vegs might have one appearance at one place, before mastication, and another when it completes it's journey down the ahem, creek.
    Are there limitations to this contest?
    Cheers,
    Mike.

  17. Great idea! Now, if only I can come up with a great idea.

  18. What's the deadline? I know I should know. But I don't.

    Oh, John, if only you'd come up with this some years ago. I wouldn't have needed to style anything. I pulled out a potato - home grown and earthy, I pulled out a carrot - homegrown and earthy. Then I laughed. My exhibits might as well have been you and Chris. With all bits in the right place.
