A few weeks ago I went along to the south side community centre to support Lily and Neil who were showing and competing with their allotment grown veggies at the annual Edinburgh Allotment and Garden Show.
Lily did very well with her turnips and placed for her beetroot too. She also entered the cucumber category.
I loved the competitive nature of all the exhibitors and some took it very seriously.
With all the rain we have been having Neil was telling me that there was half of what was shown last year due to fruit and veg not growing. They for example don't have one apple on their tree this year!
