Liz winning entries
Liz – a horticultural and fruit triumph…

Our Liz Quarshie has been successfully nurturing a wide variety of chilli plants of varying degrees of colour, shape and culinary heat. They are a fabulous collection in our greenhouse and in the garden.

We had a local produce show in Branston Village Hall, a mile from Muddy Boots, on Bank Holiday Monday at the end of August 2019.

Liz won first prize in two sections- best plant, with her multi- coloured Razz- ma- Tazz, and best chilli jam!

This was her first time entering the competition and as this is a new section, she is the first ever winner of these sections. We are all very chuffed for her…

Well done Liz from every Muddy Booter!
