Do you have a green thumb? Well here’s a chance to show off your prized fruits and vegetables. Bring your entries to the tent next to the Ladies Fair building between 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Friday of Plowing Match weekend.
The winners will receive ribbons and cash prizes. Here are two examples of premiums for the show: first prize: 1 peck of potatoes will win $4.50 and first prize: display of 5 garden vegetables will win $3.00.
Prize-winning entries will be prices and sold by silent auction beginning Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 1:00 p.m. All proceeds go to the Plowing Match Association. All entries must be grown by the exhibitor.
The participant with the most ribbon-winning entries in Section I will be awarded a $15.00 prize, as will the top winner in Section II. For the most ribbons overall, an additional award of $15.00 will be given.
