                                    I'm going to try broccoli for the first time and thought this one would be great since red and purple attract far less cabbage worms. 'Serpente di Sicilia Edible Gourd' also known as Cucuzzi is something I haven't eaten since we would visit my grandparents in Brooklyn. They were commonly grown in the tiny back yards. Red orach should look great in the ornamental borders and supply spinach like leaves well into the summer. 'Butter King' lettuce is supposed to be very heat resistant. 'Charleston Belle' peppers are nematode resistant. The wild strawberries should be fun to grow. Fig leafed hollyhocks are supposed to be rust resistant. Finally think how great those green nicotiana will look with green 'Envy' zinnia's.
                                     
                                    Despite the warnings of more snow, I know that spring can't be that far away!

                                    1. Interesting…..purple beans also attract less Japanese beetles than green beans. I haven't grown any of the items your list. I am looking forward to seeing how they grow for in your garden.

                                      1. I will have to keep an eye on my purple beans if Japanese beetles decide to visit this year. Purple beans are also supposed to be able to sprout in coiler soils.

                                    2. I'm still using the Gentilina lettuce seeds you sent to me in 2012, and they have an 80% germination rate! Your Summer Bouquet is another winner at 70%. Lingua di Canarino from 2011 was another keeper, but for some reason I forgot to record the % germinating. I have to protect all my green lettuces from birds, but they seldom bother the red ones. Wireworms ruin my white roots (turnips & radishes), but don't usually bother the red roots.

                                      You always have the most interesting and varied seed lists!

                                      1. Thanks Granny! Good to know about the germination rates, I won't have to run germination tests on those. Birds don't bother my lettuce seedlings, but they will devour my spinach seedlings!

                                        I almost ordered quinoa, but the realized I don't even know what to do with that grain or if I would like it!

                                      2. I like quinoa, but to me it's more texture than flavor and a PITA to cook!

                                    3. I think I ordered the Wonder yellow strawberry. They were quite good! Did well for a first shot at it, I think. :)
