Varieties Changed

Last week I posted the plant varieties we plan to grow this year, but a few changes have been made. We’ll grow Homestead tomatoes instead of Marglobe because Homestead should produce better in our hot, humid summers. We’ve added Cocozelle zucchini and plan to grow it as a fall cash crop after sweet onions are harvested. We’ve changed to Dukat Dill from Mammoth because of the more compact growth habit of the Dukat. I think all else is the same.

We’ve ordered seed already and expect to get the first shipment next week. It’s been way too rainy for planting fence posts or setting up the greenhouse. I say greenhouse but it’s really a tiny portable thing that will be used as a germination house; it should work just fine. I’ll get started on leveling the ground for it on Tuesday (I hope).
