Trying something new this year?

dfrostnh | Jan 17, 2011 03:32 AM

Last year I search for choy sum seeds. Didn't have great results growing but I'll try again. Red Noodle Beans were prolific but I failed to find a recipe we liked. I expected they would taste like green beans.

I haven't learned. This year I am on a turnip craze and ordered seeds from a company that carried one of the varieties (actually it's a rutabaga) and something at least as good but advertised as better than hakurei turnips (might have that first name wrong - it's a white summer turnip). Turnips and rutabagas have not been important on our table but maybe these new ones will turns us into turnip lovers!

Despite being very happy with Confection Winter Squash from Johnny's I'm trying a competitor's claim for a squash that's even better.

How about you? Are you looking for something that maybe someone else has found? What new varieties are you planning to try (and why)?

Happy New Year!
