Default Putting Green

As a certified judge, some of the turn-in boxes look wonderful. Do you place a layer of shredded lettuce below the parsley or just a layer of parsley to form the putting green? Just wondering how everyone makes a wonderful turn-in boxes.

Correct me if I am wrong. You can use shredded green leaf correct as a bed right?

Now I see how you guys make things look perfect. Do you use the shredded iceberg lettuce that is already shredded (you buy at the store)? This looks like it is very time consuming and a lot of work - we are blessed as judges.

Thats great except for the fact that as a certified judge you are not supposed to be judging the garnish.

I'm slow and don't make a lot of them. It's wouldn't be unusual for me to spend 60+ minutes making a single box.

I'm getting better. If the parsley is good quality I can do 4 boxes in under 2 hours. One contest it was over 3 hours. So while others party Friday night I'm doing boxes. But it does make a nice box.

I tear up about 1 large leaf of green lettuce for the bottom of each box.
