  1. Looks like a pretty good garden coming your way in 2015!
    Keep us posted on that romaine-speckled. I wanted to try it, but ended

    1. Sue, We like the romaine-speckled. My hubby is not into the "earthy" greens. This one was crisp, fresh and pretty too.

  2. What a list! I envy you -- you certainly grow more food than I but I am going to try to grow a little more this year!
