Self Guided Tour Station 6: Vegetable Trials Beds

Veggies_beds-abcd

(Beds a,b,c,d)

These four beds are used to test varieties of vegetables to determine which do best in our marine-influenced local climate. Trials are performed annually on tomatoes and other common summer vegetables. In the winter, we test a few cool-season vegetables. Based upon our trial results, recommendations are updated annually. Our latest recommendations are available in a box on our shed.

Also, available in on the shed and website is a handout of general recommendations for what to grow in our area titled  “Vegetable and Herb Planting Recommendations.”
