            Good luck @Zigs :dbgrtmb:

            That list is far too ambitious for me but I reckon you'll not only do it but win, win, win! :Wino:

              That's a lot of categories :phew:

              It looks as though you want to beat Mrs Shiney's record :heehee:. She swears that she won't enter so many categories in our local show this year! :whistle:

              Do they also do a prize for the highest total number of points?

                It's a few more than I normally enter but some of them can be prepared beforehand :)

                There's a Banksian medal for the highest points for flowers, fruit, veg and herbs but I think that would be a bit ambitious :biggrin:

                    Mrs Shiney has been winning the Banksian Medal (RHS) for quite some years. You're not allowed to win it more than once in three years so she has been winning it every third year :heehee:

                              That would make a good cough medicine @Zigs. :) Would parsnip wine work? I don't know where this came from but I like the idea. :biggrin:
