Last weekend, I had my first experience of one of the most British of things: the village show. One of my friends lives in a small village just outside Canterbury, and she was participating in their autumn village show. All the things you would expect to find at a village show were there – tasty-looking cakes and biscuits:
and of course giant vegetables:
My friend won several prizes and was runner-up overall. She’s very good at baking, and we were lucky enough to be able to eat the prize-winning goods afterwards. Yum.
