Today was the long awaited Vegetable Contest and Picnic!
Today’s Master Gardener Judges were Numa Laiche, Don Crites, and John Opelia. They came out to share their expertise and wisdom on growing the perfect veggie.
The criteria, rules and guidelines were followed accordingly by each student to enter the contest.

Once all the entries were submitted, it was time for the judges to come in and rank the veggies according to color, size, and marketability.
After much debate, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons were given out to each participant, and a Grand Champion was named.
A big Congratulations to our Grand Champion, Amelia Contreras. She won Grand Champion with the BHN 968 tomatoes. They were perfectly identical in shape and color and were exceptionally unique because they are all attached together. Now, that’s a true gardener!
