[ Potato (Solanum tuberosum 'Irish Cobbler') | Posted on February 20, 2018 ]

This potato grew very well for me here in New Hampshire. They were decent size (little bigger than a man's fist) and their production was good on a per-plant basis. A couple of them did display some hollow heart issues, but it was not a major issue. I used them for making mashed potatoes and they were very good in that role.

[ Coral Bells (Heuchera Dolce® Peach Melba) | Posted on April 28, 2017 ]

I've had this plant for a few seasons now and I really don't have much good to say about it. The leaf color is wonderful...that much I'll give it. But it is simply not a good grower for me. While other Heuchera planted nearby do very well, this one struggles every year and has progressively gotten smaller each season. This is likely its last year for me before it goes to the compost bin unless it does something dramatically different...but so far, it looks like more of the same. Slow growth and smaller than it's ever been.
