Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Time to try new varieties of veggies. In it, I list many of this year's newest vegetable varieties in
an effort to entice you to try something new. There's a whole world of
delicious veggies out there and this is only the tip of the iceberg!
I know I will be asked where you can find seeds for the
vegetables I named so here is the information:
Cook's Garden - 'White Wonder' acorn squash
Ed Hume Seeds - 'Spookie Deep Sugar' pumpkins

'Karlo' organic heirloom peppers
