Anyone Grown for the County Fair?

heirloomjunkie(5a)October 1, 2011

I went to the fair this past summer and was looking through the tomatoes to be judged. Not trying to a tomato stob here, but I looked at a lot of them and thought "I could do better than this!" And I just might, next year. :)

Anyone entered their tomatoes? Am I being naive? I know this year, by the time the fair rolled around in Indiana, mine were nowhere near ripe. So I'd probably have to start early in a greenhouse. But this seems like a pretty neat thing to try.

Go for it! I'm trying to figure out some plants I can grow for the horticultural exhibit. I just found out that one man got $90.00 is prizes. I could live with some extra green stuff! I've always been intimitated by the skill of the people that enter, but I've got to start somewhere.
