In a previous post I said that I’d tell you why I selected the seeds that I ordered. That’s what today’s post is about.
Premium Crop hybrid broccoli – I’ve been growing sprouting broccoli for a long time. My wife has always wanted me to grow the big heads like in the store. This year I’m giving it a shot.
Red Acre cabbage – Last year we grew this variety. It was really good and didn’t have much of that cabbage taste to it. It was just very tasty.
Danvers 126 carrot – I always have problems with carrots. So this is just the next attempt to find a good variety for my area.
Keystone Resistant Giant bell peppers – This is my go to bell pepper. I’ve grown these for several years and will likely keep growing this variety for many years in the future.
Jalapeno pepper – Jalapeno poppers. Enough said.
Abraham Lincoln tomato – I’ve been looking for a great slicing tomato for a long time. We haven’t found the perfect variety yet. Here’s this year’s attempt.
Edmonson cucumber – I didn’t really have a reason that sticks out why I picked this one.
Black Beauty zucchini – These are the type of zucchini that my wife likes best.
Waltham Butternut squash – We really like butternut squash so I decided to give it a try this year.
Crimson Sweet watermelon – I just picked this one out of the catalog because the ripe fruit looks tasty.
Bunch Porto Rico sweet potato – We just started eating sweet potatoes recently. I decided I wanted to try growing them this year. I just picked a variety that looks good. These will come in the Spring as started plants.
Salad mix – I usually order a mesculin mix from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, but that contains oak leaf lettuce. I’ve come to realize that I don’t like that type of lettuce. So this year I ordered a bunch of different lettuce seed to make up my own salad green mix. Most of them are loose leaf lettuce, there are a couple of bibb type and even a mustard green.
So there you go, the reasons that I bought the types of seed that I got this year.
