    Default Jap pumpkin - Donor N/K

    I forgot about my pumpkin. Have got a beauty growing and I hope to try pumpkin pie and roasted pumpkin. On the seed packet it just said Pumpkin Jap.

    What a great idea, VC - it will be so exciting to see and hear about all the varieties in the VSP that we haven't heard about before!

    Here's one pic I posted last year but they are still a big favourite of mine: Pole bean "Berner Landfrauen", a heritage variety from Switzerland. Beautifully speckled pods are easy to spot among the green leaves, good yield, excellent flavour, and stringless even when already somewhat big! I sent some in so may still be available, if not, give me a shout and I'll send some more, I saved plenty of seeds again this year!

    I'm hoping that these posts will encourage others to try some of the unusual varieties, saved by you, nellie, and others
    "Berner Landfrauen" beans are still available from the VSP - but I expect a run on them now
