    Whew – this is an impressive list, I really appreciate the detail on the variety. I have narrowed my cukes down to just National Pickling cuke from High Mowing Seeds because we can eat them and pickle them. That’s a lot of tomatoes, 24 varieties, how many plants do you grow?

    that’s a beautiful collection and so helpful to know what does and can grow in SFe. Do you ever need more “farm land” in town? I have just under 3 acres, a well, rabbits too of course.
