|[ Carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus 'Danvers Half Long') | Posted on October 15, 2017 ]
I grew this variety for the first time this year. It grew very well in fairly sandy soil. The taste was mediocre; certainly better than store bought carrots but I think there are many better varieties out there!
|[ Acorn Squash (Cucurbita pepo 'Sweet REBA') | Posted on October 7, 2017 ]
Everyone should grow this cultivar of acorn squash! Given the proper time to ripen on the vine, this squash is so naturally sweet it is best eaten plain. The plants are extremely tolerant of subpar conditions and impressively resistant to powdery mildew. I guarantee, Sweet REBA will outperform the more common cultivars of acorn squash by far in resistance, fruit appearance, and most importantly taste!! Be sure to give it a try this year, you will not regret it!
