These seeds were ordered from Comstock, Ferre and Co.
Large Viroflay Spinach--is an heirloom spinach with large smooth leaves. I may plant this one this winter since the other spinach has done so well.
Delicious 51- is an heirloom melon. It is a 4-5 lb muskmelon and is supposed to be a heavy producer (yup, that is where they got me). No I don't know where I will put it as it isn't in the "plan" but I will figure out somewhere.
Early Yellow Bush Scallop- I have only grown a scallop squash one time and it only produced 2 squash and I absolutely loved it. Hopefully these will produce a few more than 2 this year. It is a very old heirloom that can be eaten as summer squash or kept till maturity to use in pies. Native Americans dried it and used it as gourd rattles.
Jimmy Nardello-- is a sweet, long, thin frying pepper. I have been looking for these for years and hope they do better than other sweet peppers have done in my garden. It is also a very old heirloom.
Tendersweet carrots--I really can't say that I bought these for any other reason than because the seed company had a $5 minimum order and I had only spent $4.75. But I had to have carrot seeds anyway so I got these. Maybe they will do well in the deep bed.
Now...if I can just find that ...other seed company...
