|The display the guys put together - gorgeous!|
|The stall attracted lots of interest|
We also created quite a bit of interest with out pocket vine tomatoes. These strange beasties seem to be tomatoes crossed with mutated raspberries - lots of tomatolets(?) all joined together. They are very tomatoey, though not as sweet as some, but make great sauces. Last year, we'd won a prize for weirdest veg, and hoped to win with these, but the category had been changed to best animal made with fruit and veg, so we didn't get to defend the title! Not to worry, the pocket vines ensured lots of folk stopped to see what they were and then got chatting.

Sibel and Mark did a great job setting up seed wraps for folk to take away, and we also gave away the produce for a donation. We managed to raise well over £60, which was a nice bonus, and also found that people were really interested in coming to our Apple Harvest Celebration, so we're hoping to get lots of entries for our produce competitions.
