Visitors marvel at giant veg at Kehelland Show near Camborne
Visitors marvelled at the giant vegetables of all shapes at this year’s Kehelland Trust Show.
New exhibitor, Barry Wakefield - no stranger to local and national vegetable competitions, took the Best in Show Trophy for a truly enormous parsnip weighing in at a massive 4.98kg.
Local grower David Thomas has been helping the trust to produce it’s own whoppers to wow the crowds.
“Having grown our first sizeable pumpkin on site this year weighing in at 39.7kg, from David's seed, we are really excited to see if we can beat our own record next year,” said Kehelland Trust manager Anthea Hedge.

“But we also took two prizes for our large tomatoes grown at Kehelland, not from giant seed, but normal beefsteak tomato seed 'Beefmaster'. We are considering a future prize for the best giant grown from normal seed stock. Our service users were responsible for helping to grow our prize winners and also made vegetable creatures for the show.”
Kehelland School Children spent the day at Kehelland Trust on Friday (SEP 18) and made vegetable creatures, along with a variety of activities linked to the current topic - Celts and Romans. They made clay Gods, foraged for food, cooked bread over an open fire and then made Celtic Warriors using vegetables.
The trust thanked all those involved with the show, exhibitors, visitors, staff, service-users, volunteers and all at Kehelland School.
