Home demonstration gardens were located at eight sites across the state. The objective was to grow, display, and compare a wide variety of vegetables and flowers. The theme for the 2007 garden was cool-season plants. Since many of the plants typically mature early in the season, field days were scheduled for June instead of July and August. Vegetables grown at each garden included broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, peas, beets, carrots, chard, greens (lettuce, spinach, and mustard), radish/daikon, and kohlrabi. Flowers grown at each garden included pansies and pinks.
