Get your giant tomatoes ready for the Sooke Fall Fair.

Only three weeks to the Sooke Fall Fair

Fall fair president wants people to get their entries ready

The photo is of a Sicilian Saucer tomato, weighing in at 2.25 pounds and a 6-inch diameter. Is there anyone out there who can beat that? The competition is on. Bring in your early squash, wash with vinegar and keep in a dark cool space until the Sooke Fall Fair, (September 12-13). Keep on watering and fertilizing and get those knitting needles working and cameras flashing and paintbrushes creating and write in the shade of a tree.

The Building Community One Stitch at a Time quilt is now hanging at Shoppers Drug Mart. The quilt was stitched by members of the Sooke Quilting Club. Every year they donate their handmade, hand-stitched quilt to the fall fair as a fundraiser. A big thank you to Marcus Farmer for allowing us to display the quilt and hanging it for us and thanks to Jodi for co-ordinating. You may buy your $2 raffle ticket at the cosmetic counter in the store.

Start checking over your animals for show and decide on your costumes for the pet parade. Only four weeks to the fair.

Ellen Lewers, President Sooke Fall Fair
