OMG how can one get so ecstatic in Moffat, well I can,
The annual Moffat Show gets underway on the last Saturday in August, It`s a yearly highlight for all agricultural farmers, with displays from cattle, sheep, poultry and even horses, there`s even a display of chainsaw carvings, but there is always something to grab your attention.
My favourite of course is the Home Industries section, here you`ll find all the homemade cakes, biscuits, jams and marmalade, but there are other exhibits that include, flowers, fruit and vegetables,
Even the children get over ecstatic with entries for all ages and abilities, it`s a joy to have a gander and a mooch at the wonderful pieces the little ones have produced.
It`s were you meet for a blether, a catch-up and of course enter your finest piece of your very own achievements. Hoping to capture that first prize trophy, or any would be a bonus in my case.
No Need for wellies this year, as the weather was kind with the sun shining all day, children ran around getting ecstatic and playing on the hay stacks, climbing on the tractors and having a jolly good time. Mum and Dad grabbing a beer or two, relaxing and taking in the rays from the sun. Food was plenty with beef burgers, hot dogs and of course,
The Home Industries Section is what I`m interested in. I`ve worked my little socks off this year hoping to get just one prize, I`ve made Jam, chutney, bread and a few cakes.
As the competition is tough in Moffat, I really wasn`t expecting much, but with my fingers and toes crossed, I dreamed.
I want to display award winning jam served here at the Dell-Mar.
So I make my way across to the tent, nervous as one could be and guess what? I won a prize, well I actually won two, OMG.
As you can see, I am ecstatic at winning, you would of thought I`d won the pools, well it felt like it I assure you, highly commended in the Jar of Jam (any other fruit) section with my Blackcurrant and Redcurrant Jam.
I can now say we offer award winning jam here at Dell-Mar,
to go with my second prize, Bread. as you can tell from picture, I`m rather pleased with my little self.
So now you can come and visit us here and taste my winning Jam for yourself.
I would like to thank Duncan for the amazing pictures,
You can see all the picture from the show at his website Rivox Bunkhouse, I hope you'll agree they are quite special.
