Thank you all so much for your kind words.I was so happy to see the cup being left down beside my roosters in the Potato section.Of the seven different  types of Potatoes there,i thought my hopes of winning were slim,especially while looking through the screen at the other entries there.When i saw the cup being left down at my Potatoes,i was so happy.The underage section made my day.I was so delighted to see them capture two seconds places and also in two third places.

Many thanks again.
