The International Novelty Fruit/Vegetable Competition


Yesterday the schedules for the Flower Show arrived from the printers, I cannot believe another year has gone by so quickly.
This year we have elected for a gentle duck egg blue.
Now Going Gently readers have always been welcome in joining in with the Trelawnyd Flower Show and they can and indeed have entered many of the classes outlined in the schedule
But from last year they, AND THEY ALONE have their very own class and competition in which to enter and that is the Novelty vegetable ( and fruit) photo class! 



Now, for those that don't know ...all you have to do is to design you very own novelty vegetable or fruit creation. It could be an animal, or a monster, an inanimate design or anything from your imagination !
They can be as simple or as complicated as you like ! You photograph it and then send me the photo via email to me ( email jgsheffield@hotmail.com)




I will print the photo up and it will be hung in the memorial Hall on the day of the flower Show to be judged alongside others received by our head vegetable judge Mr Norman Butler.
The winner and runner up will be sent their own special certificates and rosettes!
We received over 80 photographs last year, so it would be lovely if we could have 100 this year!

  1. Legendary Mr Neville Butler is the head vegetable judge? Good, because my head looks like a massive cauliflower.

  5. Even a Flower Show has its Bah Humbug moments ... sigh ..
    The little cat looks so Japanese ( having lived around enough Japanese kitties to say so ) and I love the fish .. Imagine getting a difficult child to eat his fish bubbles :)

  7. I was scrubbing potatoes from the garden for dinner the other night and one of them looked so angry due to bug damage. I took a picture of it and thought of your competition but I don't think it's what you are looking for.
