Fair part 5 - More Ribbons

Back to the 4-H Building:

The chalk picture of the rainbow and the Family history picture above this little girl are her contributions in the Cloverbud age group in 4-H.

And believe it or not, Pecker the chicken received a 1st place!!!! She was the only chicken of this breed entered in the fair this year. I guess Delawares are rare in these parts. Her sisters chicken had competition but still came in 3rd because of her beautiful golden color. We learned a lot about chickens after talking to some expert chicken people. I thought all chickens looked the same but now I can almost tell which is a chicken from a breeder or from a hatchery. Makes all the difference to the judge.

This guy is going to the STATE FAIR. They liked his still life photo of his bionicle.

There was many many entries for cookies this year but he took the purple ribbon and is going to the STATE FAIR! Now he just has to duplicate the same cookie again...that is the challenge in our house! GREAT JOB YOU GUYS!

And of all the funny things, the cabbage we grew in the garden won 1st place in the JR cabbage division! It was a nice looking cabbage, big, bigger then her head, round and what are we going to do with it? We have another one in the fridge at home...anyone have any favorite cabbage recipes?
