Today we visited Southwell Ploughing Match and Show, an annual event which we had not had the pleasure of going to before. But with about four generations in tow we decided to make it a family day out.
The show had everything from farm equipment to craft tents and rather large vegetables as well as best in shows and horse events.
We arrived at 10.45am and didn't leave until 4.50pm so t was a full day and for only £7.50 each adult it was money well spent.
First of all we found lots of tractors to see and climb in to.
Who knew combine harvesters were so big?
This tyre was huuuge!
We had always wondered how they harvested corn, now we know.
Amazed at the size of these parsnips, the carrots were pretty amazing too. We all would have loved to try some of the fruit and veg on those tables ;)
This old hay baler was wonderful to watch and we got to see the finished product and look at the corn too.

This was a really lovely day and I can't wait until next year, we will definitely be going back.
