PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS

      Dry Bean Seeds: “Pinto” These small speckled brown beans are the most popular dry shell beans for winter use! Pinto beans are commonly used in Mexican cuisine and great when used for refried beans! Young pods may also be eaten as green snap bean. 90 days to maturity. Direct sow outside after danger of last frost. Plant about 4” apart and 1“below soil surface. Rows should be spaced at 24”-30” apart

.  Watermelon: “Congo”This watermelon variety has one of the highest sugar contents of any watermelon! Congo produces large cylindrical fruit with blunt ends ranging in weight from 30 to 50 lbs. The rind is medium green in color with dark-green stripes and thick and tough, making this a good shipper. The high quality flesh is firm, medium red and sweet with sugar tests up to 9.5%. Resistant to Anthracnose, races 1, 2 & 3. Average water needs. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies, and/or birds.

 Beet: “Detroit Dark Red” This heirloom beet is one of the most popular beets out there! Prolific, Detroit Dark Red beets mature in an average of 58 days. Roots are nearly globe shaped, 2.5 to 3 inches in diameter with smooth skin, and are blood red in color with virtually no zoning. Solid roots keep well, and are also great for canning! Medium green tops with tinges of red can be harvested early and used for salad greens. Direct sow outside as soon as the ground can be worked. Can also be fall planted. Plant about 4” apart and 1/2“below soil surface. Rows should be spaced at 12”-18” apart.

  Cabbage: “Golden Acre” Heads of Golden Acre cabbage are firm, round, and medium green with white centers. Fast growing Cabbage variety that gives you heads that average 3 lbs. Versatile and excellent fresh or cooked! Matures in about 65 days. Sow seeds indoors before last frost, or direct sow seeds outside after last frost. Plant seeds about 1/4” under soil surface, with 24” – 30” between plants.

Popcorn Seeds: “Lady Fingers” Ladyfinger is a high-quality popcorn. History of Ladyfinger suggests that it may be one of the oldest varieties of  popcorn.  Prepare the soil with compost or other organic matter. One week after frost or when the soil consistently reaches 60 degrees F, plant the corn 1″ deep and 8-12″ apart. Planting blocks of four short rows ensures good pollination. Germination should take place in 5-6 days. Days to maturity 91-100. 72-96″ plant height. 4-6″ spacing. Produces 6-7″ ears with white kernels for popping. Harvesting Lady Fingers Corn: Leaving the corn on its stalks to completely dry in the field gives the best results; when they are ready to harvest, the stalk and the ears will be completely brown with no green coloring at all. However, since continued rainy weather and humidity compromise the quality of the ears, it may be necessary to continue drying them inside. Choose a dry location with moderate heat, but out of direct sunlight; hang the stalks upside down, or lay them out flat.

 

  Carrot: “Scarlet Nantes” This Carrot variety is very popular, and it’s no wonder! Great flavor, texture, and uniformity make this one a winner! Cylindrical roots average 7” long x 1.3” in diameter. Short 10-12” tops. Bright red-orange fine-grained flesh is nearly coreless with a very sweet flavor. Colors up early for baby carrots! Direct sow outside in early spring. Can be fall planted. Plant about 2” apart and 1/2” below soil surface. Can sow closer, and then thin later. Rows should be spaced at 18”-24” apart.

  Radish: (German Giant) Easy to grow, edible at all stages. Very large, originates from Germany, has scarlet-red skin and crisp white, slightly pungent flesh. Harvest when marble to baseball size. Will not get woody or spongy.  Plant 1/2″ deep in cold soil and up to 1 1/2″ deep in warm soil. The deeper planting may also give you slightly larger roots, especially if you give them a slightly wider spacing. Spacing is critical when growing radishes. If they are overcrowded they won’t produce good roots. Thinning is recommended if plants seem overcrowded. Plant in the early spring when days are still short. Make shallow (1/2˝ to 1 1/2˝) furrows. Sow the seeds 1/2″ to 1″ apart. Bigger seed may also result in larger roots. Sow directly outdoors, as it germinates easily in cold soil and the plants grow rapidly.

  Corn: “Golden Bantam” One of the first yellow sweet corns, this old heirloom is full of sweet flavor. Not only is it early, it’s delicious! Also great for freezing, even freezes well on the cob. Ready in 80 days. Direct sow outside after danger of last frost. Plant about 4” apart and 1” below soil surface. Rows should be spaced at 30”-36” apart

Corn: “Country Gentleman”  Country Gentleman corn, a heirloom variety, is the most well known variety of shoepeg corn. Named for the similarity of its kernels to wooden pegs used in shoe making, shoepeg corn is characterized by small, irregular white kernels of unsurpassed tenderness and sweetness. The American South has made this type of corn its own, and it is virtually unrecognized in other areas of the United States. Country Gentleman was first offered for sale in 1890. Prepare the soil with compost or other organic matter. One week after frost or when the soil consistently reaches 60 degrees F, plant the corn 1″ deep and 8-12″ apart. Planting blocks of four short rows ensures good pollination. 90 days. Produces 7-8″ ears with irregular white kernels.

 CUCUMBER: “MARKETMORE” Developed by Dr. Munger of Cornell University. MARKETMORES produces 8″-9″ long fruits varying in diameter from 2″-2 ?”. Dark green even in hot weather with a sweet mild flavor. Plant cucumbers in hills or mounds with plenty of added organic matter. Sow 6-7 seeds in a hill, thinning to the 3 best vines. In cool regions, start seeds indoors 10-14 days before the last frost, or sow seeds directly when the soil is at least 70F. Plant seeds 18″ apart if trellised or 36″ apart if left to sprawl. Days To Maturity: 58-75 DaysSun/Shade: Full Sun

   Dill: “Mammoth Long Island Dill” is used as a pickling spice, food flavoring, and garnish. Leaves can be dried for later use. Grows a little taller than Bouquet with sparser foliage and is more green (slightly less blue-green) in color. Higher yields and earlier maturity than other varieties. Considered the best variety for pickling! Attractive to bees, butterflies, and/or birds. Average water needs. Sow seeds indoors before last frost, or direct sow seeds outside after last frost. Plant seeds just under soil surface, and water.

Rhubarb Seeds: “Victoria”  This heirloom variety of rhubarb comes from horticultural expert Joseph Myatt of Manor Farm in Deptford, England. Mr. Myatt introduced Victoria rhubarb in 1837, to honor England’s beloved queen; rhubarb immediately became an extremely popular dessert inspiration in the fashionable circles of Britain. The Victoria rhubarb strain, which soon made its way across the ocean, is also responsible for the American culinary tradition of rhubarb. About two months before the last expected spring frost, start the rhubarb seeds indoors. Soak them for several hours then plant two seeds per peat pot; keep them warm until germination, then clip off the weaker seedling. When the outdoor temperature reaches an average of 45 degrees F and no lower than 32 degrees F at night, transplant the seedlings. Plant them 3-4′ apart in rich soil and full sun. Avoid harvesting rhubarb in its first year of growth, to allow the plant to develop full strength and maturity. Harvest lightly in the second year and fully in the third year. To harvest the stalks, grip the stalk near its base and give it a twisting pull. Removing the entire stalk rather than cutting it actually allows for new stalks, increasing production; this method also prevents rot and disease from developing. Keep in mind that the leaves of rhubarb are mildly poisonous. Perennial. 1-2 years. 24-30″ height. 36-48″ spacing

  Kale: “Siberian” is a very hard kale with exceptional flavor that’s improved by a light frost! This variety’s appearance is attractive with its frilly leaves and blue-green color.

The countries of eastern Asia remain on the top of the list for bunching onion production. Plant the seeds 1/4″ deep in a flat 2-3 months before the last frost date; keep the soil moist and at room temperature. When the tops begin to flop over, cut them off to 3″ to focus the growing on the roots. Four weeks before the last frost or when the soil reaches at least 50 degrees F, transplant the seedlings 3″ apart in rows 12″ apart.

      Green Beans: “Blue Lake” Are the classic bean most people think of when you think of a green bean. Known in the canning industry for years because of its reliability, huge yields, disease resistance and its ability to bear all at once making canning a much easier task. Blue Lake produces plump, tender, dark green pods that are about 5 1/2″ long. The bush itself only grows about 16″ saving space in your garden, but producing big juicy yields. This is THE green bean for canning or freezing. Sow the seeds 1 inch deep, about 6 inches apart, in rows 18 inches apart. Beans do not do well in a wide row planting. They must have room on either side for maximum production. Plant after all danger of frost has past. Do not plant too soon! If the soil has not warmed sufficiently, the seeds will rot in the ground before they germinate.

  Squash: “Winter Vegetable Spaghetti”  The Burpee Seed Company introduced this variety to the United States in 1936; most World War II Victory Gardens contained this squash, more commonly known as spaghetti squash. Gardeners with short growing seasons may want to start their squash seeds indoors a month before the last expected frost. Since squashes do not take well to transplanting, peat pots are the best option. Plant two seeds per pot, later clipping off the weaker seedling. Harden the seedlings by exposing them to the weather for several hours at a time during the week before transplanting. About a week after the last frost or when the soil temperature reaches an average of 60 degrees F, plant the seedlings in very rich soil 8-10′ apart in rows 10-12′ apart. Another option is to plant the seedlings in hills of two, 8-10′ apart. To direct sow, plant the seeds a week after frost 1/2″ deep, 3-4′ apart and thin to 8-10′ apart. 90 days.  18-24″ height. 4-6′ spacing. Produces oval, cream colored squashes that average 5-7 lbs.

Cilantro: The coriander plant, whose leaves are known as cilantro, is native to the Mediterranean and Middle Easter countries; it is believed to be one of the earliest spices used by man. Early physicians such as Hippocrates used coriander primarily as an aromatic stimulant or to disguise the taste of unsavory medicines. Nearly every part of this herb has a culinary use; in Thai cuisine, the roots flavor spicy sauces, while the cilantro leaves season and garnish Chinese, Vietnamese, and Mexican dishes. The coriander seed is used in candy, specialty breads, sauces, desserts, and even perfumes. In Tudor England, coriander seeds coated with sugar were known as “comfits” and became a popular treat. Gardeners in warm climates may have the best success with coriander by planting it at any time from September through February, since it is a cool weather plant. It can also be planted as soon as possible in the spring, or after the heat of summer as a fall crop. Since this herb does not take transplanting well, direct sow the seeds 1/2″ deep in rows 18-20″ apart; thin the seedlings to 12″ apart as soon as they develop leaves.

  Summer Squash: “Summer Crookneck” Summer Crookneck is a popular early variety that is great for the home vegetable garden or market! Holds and ships well. Bush type plants produce wanted light-yellow curve-necked fruits with creamy-white flesh, with a good buttery flavor! Generally used at the 5-6″ stage. Matures in about 50 days. Average water needs. Attractive to bees, butterflies, and birds. Direct sow outside after danger of last frost. Plant in hills of 2-3 plants per hill at 36”-48” apart, and 1“below soil surface.

Eggplant: “Black Beauty” is a popular heirloom variety of eggplant with big yields! Bushy spreading plants grow up to 30 inches and hold their purplish-black oval fruit well off the ground, keeping it nice and clean! High quality fruit averages 2 pounds, holds well and retains good color. 72-85 days to maturity. Average water needs. This variety is suitable for growing in containers.

 Eggplant “Organic Long Purple”  Seeds: Eggplant thrives in the full heat of summer; row covers, black plastic, or other methods to conserve heat may be necessary in some climates. If temperatures threaten to fall below 55 degrees F, cover the plants. As soon as the seedlings become established, mulch them to conserve moisture and control weeds. Keep the soil evenly moist.  Though gardeners with long growing seasons will be able to direct sow their eggplant seed when the soil reaches 70 degrees F, starting the seed indoors is best in most areas. About 8-10 weeks before the last expected spring frost, plant the seeds in pots 1/4″ deep. Keep them in a sunny window or under a grow light, maintaining a temperature of around 80 degrees. Germination of eggplant can be spotty, and may take several weeks. Keep the seedlings moist and provide organic matter for the best development. Gradually expose them to the elements by leaving the pots outdoors during the day. When the average air and soil temperature reach 70 degrees, or about 3 weeks after the last frost, plant the seedlings in well drained soil in full sun; for fullest growth, allow each plant 2-3′ in all directions. 75 days
