    Bosque Blue Bumblebee Tomato

    J and L seeds says ‘This new and very rare tomato has deep purple shoulders on a glorious yellow background. It is a smaller salad tomato, juicy, with luscious texture and a sweet citrus flavor. You can pick a couple a day over a long season off the vigorous 6 foot indeterminate plants. Bumblebee takes about 70 days to produce ripe fruit from transplanting. Bred here on our farm.’

    Default Veggiechicken

    Angelica

    Taken from Victorianna nursery - "This is a most versatile ancient herb. A member of the carrot family, it is a very attractive plant in its own right, with handlike leaves and clusters of small white/green flowers which only appear in the second year (if not cut off the plant usually dies).
    Young shoots can be added to salads, the stems and roots can be used as a vegetable, and the seeds can be used in pastries. The stems can also be peeled, cut into small slices, steamed and thereafter crystallised for cake decoration, sweet meats, and chopped and included in homemade ice cream and cakes!"

    Grows to 3-8ft (1-2.5m) tall.
    Hardy biennial.
    Stem can get to an arm's thickness at base.
    Flowers July-August.
    Prefers deep, moist soil (likes riverbanks!)
    Will grow in full sun (but benefits from a mulch) or in partial shade.
    Will self seed.
    Plant 2-3ft (60-100cm) apart.

    Lovage

    Taken from Victorianna nursery - "A useful and flavoursome plant that gives a very pleasant taste to the palate if a few crushed leaves are added to whisky! A yeasty celery aroma arises which is quite delightful. Lovage also makes a pleasant cordial.
    It is a member of the carrot family".

    Perennial.
    Umbels of yellow flowers July - August.
    Reaches 4 - 6 foot 6" (1.2 - 2 metres) tall.
    Likes deep, rich soil but will tolerate stony soil.
    Prefers part shade.
    Not suitable for growing indoors.
    Dies back completely in winter.
    Sow seed late summer in drills ˝" (1 cm) deep.
    Plant out 2 feet (60 cm) apart in autumn or spring.

    Red Russian kale

    Taken from Nicky's Nursery - "Grey-green feathery leaves on purple stems add a distinctive shape and texture to the salad bowl and baby leaf salad mixtures. A baby veg that can also be used in stir-frying. Harvest young leaves 4 to 6 weeks earlier for sweet, tender baby leaf. Sow 1cm deep early spring under cover or direct sow April through to September."

    Default Chrissyteacup

    Tamra cucumber

    Originally from real seeds. From their website: "This superb variety was thought lost years ago, but cucumber breeder Robert Bruns heard of our search for an early, disease resistant, non-bitter, cucumber, and sent us the last few seeds he had. From those few seeds we regenerated this variety back in 2002 - & it's great!"

    Fish Chili

    Information taken from Victorianna Nursery - "First brought to America by African slaves in the 1770s this variety of Chilli was probably the only good thing to come out of the American slave trade. To this day it is still a highly popular variety with African Americans and particularly coveted for seasoning fish and shellfish dishes.

    A highly ornamental variety, the bright green leaves are often striped or speckled cream in colour - and pure cream-coloured leaves are also common. The tapered start of light green with darker stripes and mature to striped orange and finally striped red. The fruits can be used at any colour stage. With a lovely sweet flavour it is the heat that can be unpredictable - and in many ways they are just like the Padron Pepper with some fruits having very little heat whilst others (on the same plant) being quite fierce. Its a more than sensible idea to test each one as you add it to your cooking!

    The fruits grow to around 3" (7˝ cm) in length and taper from around 1" (2˝ cm) in diameter to nothing with a 'stubby' appearance. The plant grows to around 2 feet (60 cm) in height and has a fairly compact habit".

    Origin: Africa
    Heat: Medium Hot - fruits can vary from 5,000-30,000 SHUs.

    Default Muckdiva

    Lettuce ‘Stoke’

    Originally from HSL. "Originally from Stoke, near Rochester in Kent, where the Cheesman family had grown it for 170 years, but this variety probably dates back to before 1840. A compact and trouble-free lettuce, perfect for growing in limited space or in containers. The dark green leaves are crunchy, flavoursome and slightly sweet. Sow to harvest 70 days (approx.)"

    Oakleaf Lettuce

    Dill
