PARSLEY WINS FIRST PRIZE IN NAUL – FOURTH WEEK IN SEPTEMBER 2009

The Naul and District Horticultural Show took place on Saturday and Sunday 26th and 27th of September. These showsNaul Show are a great place to meet other growers and to see what else grows well in the area. My own garden has tasty produce but only the parsley was deemed good looking enough to form an entry. The Naul Show rules require three stem of parsley to be presented.

So early Saturday morning at 8.30am before attending the usual Saturday clinics in the Constituency Office in Swords, I cut the best three stems and took them to the Seamus Ennis Centre in Naul village about 4 miles west of Balbriggan. John Markham, a renowned vegetable grower from the RHSI gave me a tip to tie the stems first to make them presentable in the display vase.

It was very encouraging to see a first prize sticker beside my entry when I returned later that afternoon. In case anyone is wondering, the judges do not see or know the names of entrants when they inspect each entry.
