Hello Linda -

You picked out some great varieties to grow. I've been taking the cherry tomatoes and the Royal Purple to market in Santa Fe the last couple of Saturdays. In fact, I was just out finishing up picking for tomorrow's farmer's market. Then the majordomo (irrigation ditch captain) came by and let me have the water for a couple hours. It has been dry and windy and you learn to never turn down water, so I am irrigating this afternoon.
There are 400 plants - 150 varieties out in the field now. I have about 25 more varieties to set out that my friend Dmitry sent from Russia and some others from the Polish breeder, Anna Jankowski. We should be able to add a number of new ones to the catalog later this summer.
I just took a photo of the south field with the water on. There is corn and chile in the background and melons and tomatoes closer in the photo.
Good luck with everything. I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes.
Lee
