Lettuce Challenge 2017- Finale
Today was the day. The winners were announced and heralded at a special ceremony at the Stamford Government Center. The Mayor presented the awards - a blue ribbon to Tyler Johnson for Best in Show. Lots of beaming faces - students and parents and teachers- all pleased by the lovely looking butter crunch lettuce plants. Now the plants can go back into the school vegetable gardens to grow into full heads and eventually be part of a summer salad. Many thanks to the members of The Stamford Garden Club for all of their work in organizing and funding this effort.
