Our club entered many competitions at this year’s Fairfax County 4-H Fair. Our trifold was even selected as a trophy/champion winner!
Here is our scrapbook. We’re very proud of our work.
Several of the club’s members also entered contests for their individual works and won prizes in categories such as writing, photography, art, and woodworking.
A preview of the harvest part two.
This weekend is the Fairfax County 4-H Fair and Carnival at Frying Pan Park. Our club will be submitting many items including some sample produce from our garden. It’s not time for a big harvest, but we were able to get some carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and cucumbers. It was great fun and very rewarding to see the results of our hard work.
Last week we weeded around the okra and gave them some fertilizer. This is how we were rewarded.
See their progress from last week.

Whether these are your favorite veggies or not, the plants are lovely and we can’t wait to harvest them. See how much they grew in just two weeks!
Gardening is fun, but hard work. Check out our carrots, before and after an afternoon of weeding.
Excitement is in the air! The 68th annual Fairfax County 4-H Fair and Frying Pan Farm Park Show will be held August 4- August 7 at Frying Pan Farm Park in Herndon, VA and the Fairfax Citty Community Club will have a booth.
