Mid-Atl - Jan 2016 - Happy New Year!

Post  sfg4uKim on 12/29/2015, 9:19 am

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

What will you be trying this year that's NEW to you? A new variety of an old favorite? Something you've never grown before?

I'll be trying a couple new tomato varieties and a pygmy amaranth.

Here's a Cosmic Eclipse tomato:

And here's a Pygmy Torch Amaranth:

I have been looking at growing Amaranth also.  I am growing it in my micro-green mix and it is so pretty in the mix.  I looked on line to see about buying it for my garden but there are a gazillion varieties and I couldn't decide.  I want it to eat the leaves in the summer in a salad.  Any suggestions.

That tomato is soooo pretty.  I wonder what it tastes like!  You'll have to keep us informed.

This year I'm trying: Cherokee purple tomatoes, New York Early onion, Dragon's Tongue bush beans, Hidatsa Shield dry beans, and as many pepper varieties as I can fit in my new mini 2x4 green house!  Yay!

Looks like Amaranth is a common theme here. I'll be trying the Kerala Red from Baker Creek.

Yolos - it's a leaf type. PM me know if you want some seed.
