The Milton Farmers' Market is sponsoring the first Milton Home Gardeners Contest. The event celebrates our town's farming roots in collaboration with the Milton 350th Anniversary.

Back yard gardeners who plant, cultivate and weed, this will be your chance to show off your best efforts.

Four crops will be judged:
1, Tomatoes (standard size or cherry
2. Peppers (green and/or green,yellow & red)
3. Green Beans (bush or pole)
4. Summer Squash (yellow or zucchini)

Contestants should bring four samples of each vegetable to be entered -- of similar size and shape if possible (for the green beans and cherry tomatoes, bring 10 of each; for  the largest zucchini category, one entry is sufficient.)  Name the variety of the vegetable entry if possible -- especially for tomatoes as this is a very desirable fact for other home growers to learn (and yes, we know that tomatoes are botanically a fruit but we do seem to eat them as vegetables).

Judges will include some of our own Farmers' Market growers, one of whom studied scoring of produce at Bristol County Agricultural School.  As an official at the Marshfield Fair told us, judges are looking for the quality that would be required if the product were to be marketed.

We are hoping many home and community gardeners will bring entries.  There will be Entry Forms available at the Market. Questions? Please phone Janet Christensen at 617-698-7752.
