SECTION E - JUNIOR COMPETITORS (16 years of age and under) 

Class 36 - SUNFLOWERS​ - grow in average to poor soil, Plant 4 seeds

12 in. apart, 1/2” deep, in full sun. ​WARNING: These plants may grow to 10 feet tall and need stalking

​ Cut your biggest flower with a stem about 10” long and put it in a container of water and bring it in to win your prize!! Let the birds eat the seeds on the tall stalks. 

Class 37 - ZUCCHINI SQUASH -​ ​plant 3 seeds,

​ 1 inch deep, in a special hill (dig a hole 12 inches deep and 2 feet wide, in full sun. Put 6” of compost or manure in the bottom of your hole, then fill it back up with the soil you dug out) They will need 6 feet to grow their vines

Keep them watered if there is no rain. Put mulch on top of your hill when the seeds sprout, it will keep the fruit dry and the roots moist. Eat them while they are small (1” - 2” diameter) but let one stay on the vine and see how big it will get. Bring in your biggest zucchini to win a prize!! 

Class 38 - SCARLET RUNNER (pole beans) -​ plant 2 seeds 

​ 1” deep and 3” apart close to a pole or chain link fence (anything their tendrils can twist around to climb up) They will have beautiful flowers that attract hummingbirds and butterflies, and you can also eat the young bean pods that grow after the flower drops off. ​ They will grow 7’ tall and bloom well into August. Bring in some flowers in a vase and/or pods to win your prize!!
