I knew there would be changes to the edibles list for 2015. Some varieties were switched and I found two new things!
A more compact variety of basil that does well in containers was selected. Last year, after I froze all the basil I wanted for winter, I just let the plants flower and feed the pollinators. With a more compact variety, I may just plant some containers with basil to be decorative this year reserving the option to snag a leaf now and then.
I dropped red salad bowl lettuce from the ordering list. Only one of the catalogs carried it and I kept my ordering to two catalogs to save on shipping. I might find it locally at the garden center and still plant some.
A specialty melon named tigger got my attention. It looks interesting and the single serving size of white flesh intrigues me. I have not eaten it. I'm just going to try it.
The parsley change was just an availability issue.
The different pumpkin variety claims to ripen faster. With our temperamental autumn temperatures, I thought faster was better.
The new radish is a purple one. I like purple!
