Jane Griffiths Helps to Judge Giant Pumpkin Competition

Jane\'s Delicious HerbsJane Griffiths, author of Jane’s Delicious Herbs, was the “Gardening Celebrity” guest judge at the 2013 Standard Bank / Livingseeds Giant Pumpkin Competition held at the R59 Shed in Daleside.

Griffiths was tasked with finding the Prettiest and Ugliest Pumpkins, along with Claire Slabber from Talborne Organics. However, along the way they also found the Most Unique Pumpkin and a third category was quickly added to accommodate this. The overall winner of the competition was a pumpkin weighing in at an impressive 111.80kg and Griffiths also took home a prize for winning the “Guess the Weight” competition.

Saturday the 6th of April saw the culmination of a whole season’s worth of work for many of our competitors in the Standard Bank / Livingseeds Giant Pumpkin Competition at the R59 Shed.

Wow, what a day it was, the excitement started building from early in the morning when the first competitors started dropping their entries off.
