This hybrid was never sold. It was sent to Hyde in England along with many more of my hybrids. They chose not to propagate any of my lilies. Now all of my lilies are extinct.

An old melon from yesteryear. I have not grown this melon since 1954. Just obtained seeds from Sandhill and will revisit old paths this summer. I do not remember anything special about it except that it did not bottlenose as much as Kleckly's Sweet or Tom Watson. In that time and place we mostly grew more round melons, Dixie Queen and Stone Mountain, because of the bottle nose problem. Here I can grow long melons so looking forward to new data.

This was the only one of my lilies I ever named at first sight. I saw it out in the field the day it first opened, hundreds of feet away, and thought to myself, "I have to get down there and look at that. It is just stunning." And it was and is.

This treatment provides an explanation of why A. treubii is an unplaced name as well as describing why it should be considered a cultivar of A. commutatum.

A 90 day hybrid Nantes type. Blunt tip 7-9 inches long x 1 inch in diameter. Does well here as a winter crop. It has a very long season and in this climate not suited for spring planting. Excellent flavor.

By jmallory on Jan 11, 2017 10:30 AM, concerning plant: Apache plume (Fallugia paradoxa)

I successfully grow Apache Plume in zone 6a. I am in south central Oregon, just east of the Cascade range at 4200 ft elevation in a climate often known as high desert. Living here for 18 years, I have never seen it drop below -10 F. We have very fast-draining soil and it is rare to have precipitation between June and October. My oldest plant has been growing for 6 or more years and gets some irrigation in the hot summer months. .

By wildflowers on Jan 6, 2017 6:28 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Amish Paste')

We especially enjoyed this tomato low roasted in the oven with olive oil and a splash of Balsamic vinegar, then stored in olive oil in the fridge or in the freezer for long storage. Wonderful flavor. Amish Paste delivered a good harvest.
