Summer Fete — Vegetable Competition

Gourd Row

No village gathering is complete without a chance to show off the size of your spuds, or the shape of your marrows. In keeping with tradition visitors to the Dirty Bristow Summer Fête can bring their legumes, tubers and other classes of veg or fruit to be judged for the grand prize.

Entries will be judged on size, quality* and presentation — feel free to dress them up, or construct carrot dioramas representing famous historical events. See for example this scene depicting Thor Heyerdahl arriving at Tuamotu Archipelago on the Kon-Tiki:

carrot people + tiki roots

Just look at his big carroty member.

    “I think the carrot infinitely more fascinating than the geranium. The carrot has mystery. Flowers are essentially tarts. Prostitutes for the bees. There is you’ll agree a certain je ne se quoi oh so very special about a firm young carrot,”
