Creativity and vegetable growing are not two things that normally go hand in hand.
But children were able to prove art and vegetables can meet when they put their impressive “vegemals” on show at the weekend.
Young green-fingered sculptors displayed their works of watermelon sharks, courgette platypuses and pumpkin hedgehogs at Hook’s first Autumn fair and vegetable and flower show on Sunday.
The day was put on by the Hook Allotment Association to raise money to buy a new plot of land for local use as an allotment.
To help raise the funds, people came along and had the chance to show off their home-grown vegetables and sell local produce and plants.
As well as this, children were able to enter into seed tray, cupcake and gingerbread men competitions.
Sue Hinton, who was in charge of the fundraising at Hook Allotments, said: “It was lovely to see so many Hook folk coming out to support us.
“As well as the show, we raised another £850 towards the land purchase, which is fantastic, we are nearly there!”
