Be a citizen scientist and contribute to our vegetable trials for Southeast Ohio. We are looking for people excited about growing vegetables in their home gardens and then letting us know what they think. Youth and adults are welcomed to participate. Each trial contains two varieties that you will grow side by side to compare throughout the season. You can select multiple trials. For each trial you will get:
- seed for two varieties
- plot labels and a map to prepare your rows
- information specific to the crop species you selected, including planting date, plant spacing, nutrient requirements, et.
- an evaluation sheet *Sample Form*
All we need in return is for you to fill out your evaluation sheet throughout the growing season. Be sure to note things like germination, disease susceptibility, yield, and flavor. You can also let people know how your trials are performing throughout the season by posting pictures on social media using #SEOhioVegTrial
Sign up here and let us know which vegetables you would like to grow. You won’t be committed until we contact you and finalize our plans.
