    Wow!! What a collection!

    Please tell me you got to take home your collection and enjoy them after the judging? Our state fair was 2 weeks long with the display up the whole time. So those who displayed received half rotted vegetables by the end of the fair...

    Thanks for the kind words. But no, almost all of my veggies will be rotten and spoiled by the time the fair is over. The rules state that they must remain on display after judging for the entire length of the fair (which is 12 days long) or I forfeit all ribbons and prize money. I hate to see them waste away, but at the same time I love that so many people come to the fair and get to see and enjoy them.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Ouch! Hopefully there were plenty of other vegetables for you to enjoy. Just to think, all that work and they let it rot...

    I have had an abundance of veggies this year. So much so that I send them to work with my wife to give away several times a week as well as giving them to neighbors and friends.

    I bet people like living next to you. Do they reciprocate with other goods in return?

    No one has ever given me anything in return. They have actually never even offered.

    They don't deserve your generosity. I swear some people are so awkward in their social graces. They would call the cops if someone breaks in, but don't realize it's rude to return Tupperware dirty or not at all.
