SDGHA Show 2016

It was the Stapleford & District Garden Holders Show on Sat 20th Aug.  After last year's success, DigIn decided to enter again this year.  We entered onions, a cucumber, Borlotti beans and a bunch of grapes.  The onions weren't placed, but we got a 3rd place for the cucumber, 1st place for the Borlotti beans (in the "any other vegetable" category) and a first place for the grapes.  In addition to that, the grapes were awarded the Webro cup and £10 for the "best fruit in show".  A very good result for DigIn, especially considering the high quality of the other entrants.  Well done to all of our volunteers!

Wednesday session

A busy day at the allotment on Wednesday, lots of volunteers helping with all the tasks that need doing this time of year.  We were thanked by way of onions and cucumbers from the allotment and probably the last of the summer raspberries - yum!

Two visitors from the Tesco Toton Community team came to donate a new waterbutt and some drinks & biscuits!  How did they know?!  Thankyou for your kind donations, I'm sure the volunteers will appreciate them!
