Transporting Vegetables to the Fair

LettuceVegetable specimens that may be damaged while being transported should be individually wrapped in tissue paper or newspaper. Place the wrapped specimens in strong containers, such as bushel baskets or boxes, using large amount of crumpled paper between layers. Also, take along extra specimens for each exhibit, in case something happens to one or more of those chosen for entry in exhibition.
