Show What You Grow…from your MIND, with your HANDS, from your GARDEN!
This is it folks…down the home stretch. Get those veggies in tip top shape for the Quadra Island Fall Fair and “dig our Island culture”! It has been a spectacular summer, with conditions that we haven’t seen for a wee while. It has pretty much taken us by surprise as we happily contend with bumper crops of vegs and fruit that have had the chance to ripen and cure to perfection, a little bit early to boot, so perfectly timed for our Fall Fair. I have high expectations for the show tables for the Fruit, Vegetables and Field Crops so, don’t delay in getting those prize winners down to the Community Center on Saturday morning, 9:00 – 4:00 pm. Remember that those submitting Giant Pumpkins in the Field Crops category, Class #1, must call Carol Anne, 250 285 2482, before 6 pm Friday, September 5, 2014 to enter them, as they will be judged in the field on Saturday morning. The Horns of Plenty, (remember, CASH prizes this year!) must be dropped off at the Community Center between 9:00 and 9:15 am on Fair Day. Pre-registration on the Saturday is mandatory, and late drop offs won’t be accepted…serious stuff these competitions, don’t ‘ya know! Don’t be shy, we know that everyone has something to enter, so gather your catalogue and ‘product ‘ and SHOW WHAT YOU GROW!! See you at the Fair!
