Know your Onions
This may or may not come as a surprise but Mark and I grow Onions!! We are committee members of our local Onion Club and this year the club celebrates 20yrs. We only have 30 members so we are quite a small club. On show day we have to present 3 onions cleaned and dressed for the supreme category and 1 onion for the heaviest Onion award, then various prizes are given for most points awarded in show, movement of most places, best onion in show etc etc.
Also Mark and I have a mini competition between ourselves as to who beats who, well this year I did miserably against Mark (girl power didn't help me this year Annemarie), he moved up about 18 places to 8th and I dropped 10 places to 16th, still never mind there is always next year.
The winning onions were deservedly winners each onion weighed around 6lbs so our winner Dave really grew some beauties, he also won the heaviest onion class. My heaviest onion only weighed 4lb 7oz so I was out of the running fairly quickly
