Station 7: Vegetable Trials Beds

STATION 7:  VEGETABLE TRIALS BEDS

(Beds III, IV, V, VI)

These four beds are used to test varieties of vegetables to see which do best in our marine-influenced local climate. We do trials annually on tomatoes and other common summer vegetables, and we test a few cool-season vegetables during the winter months. We revise our recommendations annually as new data is gathered. The results of our past trials can be found on our website. 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.”
