LERRYN AND DISTRICT PRODUCE ASSOCIATION
63rd Annual Show, Saturday 3rd August at 2pm
The weather over the last week or so has been sublime, with just enough rain to turn the hedgerows into Cornwall’s own flower displays. It’s a choice between sitting still and absorbing the beauty of it all…. or mowing, strimming, weeding, pruning and planting. We suggest getting your deckchairs out and planning your entries for the annual produce show!
Thank you to everyone who came along to the Plant Sale and Coffee Morning last month. Your marvellous support helped us raise more money than ever before and this will secure the staging of the Annual Produce Show on Saturday 3rd August.
Apart from the best and most beautiful displays of fruits and vegetables, flowers and food, we can promise you a great afternoon of entertainment including cream teas and a raffle, accompanied by music from our house band, ‘Anything Goes’ – so it’s just up to you to come and join in. Canon John Halkes will be officially opening the show at 2.30pm. Entry is 50p for adults - children are free.
If you would like to exhibit something, you will need to fill out an entry form. These are available at the shop or the pub. Your completed entry forms should be delivered to Rosemary Weatherhogg, Trelinhay, Lerryn by 10pm on Wednesday 31st July.
…and don’t forget that in the Novelty Class, we’re looking for The Tastiest Tomato. Please don’t let us down – we’re looking forward to this one!
Here are some produce pictures to inspire you in your growing efforts for the show.
Our in-house expert says:
This month is a good time to put your tender plants into their final growing positions as frosts are over. This is also the time to plant aubergines, brussels, calabrese, cauliflowers, celery, celeriac, cucumbers, kale, leeks, basil, sweetcorn.
See you on 3rd August!
