HAVE: Veggie transplants for the swap

I had poor germination on several varieties of eggplamts, so I will not have lots of eggplants at the swap. I will have Fengyuan - it did do well. I may or may not have any Thai Long Purple, it did the worst. I should have a few Ma-Zu and Pingtung. These are all Oriental eggplant, the long, skinny, non-bitter sort - delicious! Baker Creek is sending replacements but I doubt they will be ready for the swap. I will be planting Rosa Bianca this weekend.

I am also in the middle of planting some cucurbits. Assuming good germination, I will have several each of:

Winter squash - Thelma Sanders, Queensland Blue, Silver Bell, Gills Golden Pippin, Seminole Pumpkin

Melons: Minnesota Midget, Golden Crispy, Noir des Carmes (a true cantaloupe, not a muskmelon). I may have others, those are the ones I know I have.

I thought I would post these so people who might be interested could look up what these varieties are like. If interested in a particular kind, let me know. Susan, I already got you covered for the eggplant!
