Genuine Jersey Royal Growing Competition

After a gruelling week of potato weigh-ins, St Lawrence Parish Hall opened its doors to this year’s competitors. Schools, Constables and media outlets joined together to witness the public embarrassment of last year’s winners – Gallery Magazine. Oh how the mighty have fallen. After 100 days of neglect Gallery’s potato bucket produced ‘nothing more than some errant grass’. A far cry from the valiant efforts of Mr George Le Gros of St Lawrence, weighing in at 1517.9g.

Others further disproved the notion that the soil was tampered with this year. The JEP won the media competition, with a grand total of 361.1g and 15 tubers. VCP Class 3B cultivated 660g, whilst La Moye Reception A produced a crop numbering 35. We’ve been put to shame by five year olds – but it’s renewed our competitive streak. JEP, we’re coming for you next year.
