August’s harvest rapidly flowed into the Sept/Oct apple crop (more on this in the next blog) and before you know it here we are in November!
But while this hectic period was on, we still found time to enter September’s traditional local Village Show.
Now, veterans of this blog will know we have form when it comes to Shows.
Well, I say we, but although we have both entered before, only Emma had actually triumphed.
Undaunted, we tried our hand this year in six categories, and the tables were turned when I came out on top this time round.
So now we can add award winning cider and marmalade to The Secret Acre’s award winning chutney and cakes.
And not to be left out in the Show Off stakes, The Secret Acre’s dog Ruby also won two Show rosettes!
Well done on your show cards and rosettes! We missed our village show this year but determined to have a go at the next one.
Good for you! Congrats!
