Something new 2012, Something new 2013?
Something that was new to me in 2012 was Goddess Melon.
For years, the melon patch has been a focus and a source of frustration. Most recently, I've been casting about for an early Charentaise melon - without success. Passport Galia melon has been a mainstay for a good number of years but, surely, there was something else.
Goddess is a University of New Hampshire release - as is Passport!
Amongst the tomato vines, there was Casey's Pure Yellow which was the earliest of the larger tomatoes to ripen!
How about in your gardens?? Were there new varieties that did well for you in 2012? And, what about 2013 - something new you want to try??
Fireworks is another open-pollinated tomato that I've heard about for a few years. It may do well here. And, there's another open-pollinated tomato that's from the University of New Hampshire. I know "Gold Dust" only from catalog pictures and, it isn't too common. I'd better give it a try before someone decides that 99% of the country's gardeners don't need it so they'll stop offering the seed!
I will continue my quest to find an early, crack-free pink beefsteak. Maybe UNH has one!
