Unlike some big production company, she is very particular about the taste as well. That is why I am sure you will like them.

Wow! A truly impressive couple of varieties you’ve got going Karen, such large fruit size for such young plants! Can’t wait to see them turn!

Default I will try them Sam I Am ...

OK. after the building and organization of new Garden area …..

and move to less varieties and easier maintenance ...etc.

Things are better somewhat ….I will

try some of those seeds ! ….. Do you think they are O.K.in Containers? 10 gallon to start ?

I am thinking like EM Champion and Velmozha and Danko seemed to do well in my

7 Gallon square experiments ….

Oh Karen, they are huge and look wonderful!!! I love the shape of Midnight Sun, and True Colors is just... spectacular when ripe! So really stoked those two are your earliest. I'm sure we can grow them here too.

Midnight sun F7
Large bicolour yellow and pink hearts in a smaller indeterminate potato leaf plant.
Looking quite consistent again, will get pinker. I’ll cut it in a couple of days.
Very proud of this one.

Oh my, what a beauty. And a potato leaf, smallish plant as well - sounds ideal. Well done, you!
