Reno County students at Prosperity Elementary in the Buhler School District in Hutchinson are working with Charlie Barden, K-State forestry professor and extension specialist. The students are taking observations on 10 varieties of tomatoes and 12 varieties of sweet peppers. The Reno County program is the first to involve students with adult master gardeners in the data collection. The students will rate the plants for how vigorous and sturdy they are, whether disease problems develop, the number of tomatoes or peppers produced, and size and uniformity. In addition to Reno County, sites this summer include Hays, Olathe, Wichita and Manhattan.
