The babies are coming up nicely, with a few stragglers. Thanks to Marsha, DDSack, NanPA, AKMark, and all the discovers of these varieties! Best of luck to all this Spring!

Those are strong horses there, what a race. Terhune542 puts out some great ones.

I'm looking forward to Dotson's LH later this summer.

Best of luck!

Thanks Gerardo!! I'm in love with the PL variant of Terhune, and from what AKMark says, the RL is just as good! Best of luck with DLH- it's definitely a late bloomer, but boy does it produce!!

You are waaaaayyyy ahead of me Darin, I am just getting ready to drop some seeds this week! You are off to a great start with that nice bunch of varieties. Can't wait to watch your progress this season!

Got the babies out on Friday. The bad news- a windstorm blew my Jiffy pods out of the tray before I planted them, and now I don't know what it what! I guess I'll just wait on the ripe fruit to know. Adds to the excitement

Darin, do you think you'll be able to i.d. everything by the fruit? I swear we have to put dog tags on seedlings!

Gosh have we had our share of windy days! The last 3 days have been calm here, after a good month of daily winds. Hopefully you will be able to identify your varieties in a few weeks.

I sowed some bush bean and butternut squash seeds today. Spread a thin layer of mulch over top, it's supposed to rain buckets for the next couple of days. I hope the seeds don't float away, but as you say it makes it exciting, lol well interesting for sure.

I think so Nan- the only PL varieties I have are Daniel Burson, Rebel Yell, and Lucky Cross. I have one of each. From the RL varieties, GGWT is unique, I know DLH very well. But I may have trouble distinguishing between Aker's WV and Terhune, while NPS and Bear Creek will be easier to identify. Today I caved in and got a Pink Brandywine to go along with the rest

Best of luck Jillian! I planted 6 seeds of Hercules Crowder Peas around the edges of my tomato bed. I've never had them, but I hear that they are tremendous when cooked with a ham hock
