It’s the first year of the Crofting Connections program, being run at Sir E Scott school. It’s the first time they’ve entered a fruit and vegetable competition – and they’ve got thier first rosette!
Robin, our Ranger has been helping to run the practical sessions at the polytunnel in East Tarbert. Of the wide selection of fruit and veg, that the pupils had been growing, he selected carrots, mange-tout, potatoes and courgettes to enter into competitions at the North Harris Agricultural show.
Up against stiff competition from old hands who’ve been showing for years, the pupils got a third prize for their carrots. The other categories need some work!
