Grow the best Fall Fair entry

Before you plant your garden next month, think of what you'd like to enter into the Fall Fair.

Show off your beautiful vegetables, flowers and herbs at this year’s Ashcroft & District Fall Fair on Sept. 13.

It may seem like a long ways away, but right now is when gardeners are deciding what they’re going to plant.

The Fair has entry categories for all vegetables, fruit, herb displays and cut flowers. A nice ribbon for your efforts gives you bragging rights, but some of the categories come with cash prizes or gift certificates. Check the Fair’s entry booklet for those details when it comes out later this Spring.

So plan before you plant and bee ready. The Ashcroft & District Fall Fair is held Sept. 13 from 10 am to 4 pm at Ashcroft’s Drylands Arena.
