Fair Wrap-Up

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As promised, here are a few more photos from our county fair last week. We had a great time!

This was my first true county fair experience. We went to a concert, ate at the free barbecue, walked the home-owned midway, entered veggies and preserves into competition, attended horse shows, toured the animal barns…so much fun!

These are the pumpkins we entered and the ribbons we won. Hubby’s pumpkin won the reserve grand championship for all the veggies!

In addition to pumpkins, we entered some very large cucumbers, apple jelly and peach jam, and won ribbons for each.

I plan to enter even more produce and maybe even some baked goods at next year’s fair. There were not very many entries (which is why we won so many ribbons), so I’d like to encourage others to enter their exhibits by entering something in as many categories as possible.

Do you have a county fair? How do you participate?
