A relatively recent development in the AAS program is assigning Regional winners (Kansas is in the "Heartland" district). This is expanding the list of award winners to some crops that otherwise have difficulty performing at a high level in the different climates throughout North America.
So what looks good for our gardens? AAS releases the names of winners three times a year. Check in on their website frequently or follow our Facebook page for updates. There are some great ones! Following are pictures of some of the winners grown at our site in Olathe that we feel did exceptionally well.
