For my the first-ever potatoes I'd grown, I got Third place, and am very happy with that as their was a lot of competition on display. I also won Second place in the Most Unusual Vegetable category for my Ground Cherries.
I won both First and Second place in the Marigolds -Africa (aka Aztec) category. (You are allowed to have two entries per category.) That was book-ended by my Fourth place and an Honorable Mention for my two Coleus entries. My last two ribbons were Second place showings for the Aster and Ornamental Sunflower categories.
I have been entering for just a few years now and with the summer drought, I'm very pleased with this showing. Next year, I'm thinking about entering more edibles like okra and peppers.
