2021 Star of the T & T Garden. Thrived when all other squash struggled. Never got mushy when cooked. Zucchini – It is smooth and creamy in texture with a mellow flavor. Sautés better than any zucchini she’s ever cooked, keeps its texture while accepting spices well. Grew in her garden easily through fall. Golden Delight Zucchini produces fruits that have a striking yellow color from bottom to tip. Fruits may be harvested small for miniature presentations, or allowed to reach optimal size around 7-8″ long.
2021 Star of the T & T Garden. Two plants grew enough for the whole neighborhood. Elongated fruit with light green, mild tasting, uniform, easily digestible, fluted slices. When raised on trellis they grow sting and straight OR they known to twist and coil while growing on the ground. Fruit reaches over 24 inches long, but is best harvested at about 15 inches. This classic Armenian “cucumber” is actually a melon genetically.
A hybrid variety that has a Chinese-type shape that is long and slender. Fruits have a striking appearance with shiny purple skin that becomes lighter towards the calyx. This is a very productive variety with tall, upright plants that provide heavy yields. Plants will produce in late spring/early summer and continue production throughout summer and into fall. Fruits are 9-12″ long with a 1-2″ diameter. Purple Shine Eggplant is a great variety for making small slices for sauteing or frying.
Siam Queen is as gorgeous in the garden as it is delicious on the dinner plate! The sturdy stems support extra-large, 4-inch-long and 2-inch-wide bright green leaves. Clusters of small, intensely colored deep purple flowers appear on the very top of the plant, for a highly ornamental effect. Redolent of licorice, this basil is to delightful, your only problem will be whether to grow it for cuisine or for beauty.
Small blooms of white flowers are followed by lemon-scented seeds. Basil is at its most flavorful when fresh. The best time to harvest is just as the plant starts to set flower buds, well before flowers bloom. For harvesting, cut stems just before flowers open, strip leaves and use fresh, or dry on tray in dark, airy place. Or raise as a cut flower filler.
The most beautiful cut flower filler you can find. Distinctive cinnamon-colored stems, purple flowers tinged with bronze, and small to medium-sized, dark green leaves with a strong cinnamon scent. The best time to harvest is just as the plant starts to set flower buds, well before flowers bloom. For harvesting, cut stems just before flowers open, strip leaves and use fresh, or dry on tray in dark, airy place. Leaves may be frozen. Basil herb uses include tomato dishes, pasta sauces, vegetables and soups.
Oregano means joy, or brightness from the mountain. This simple, yet delightful herb has brought joy and flavor to our homes for many centuries. Small, flavorful leaves that add a delicious pungent taste to any dish! Used fresh or dried, the Italian Oregano will add that extra “bam” to all your Italian, Spanish and Mexican dishes. Oregano is also a wonderful landscape plant.
Sage is terrific in stuffing, cheese, and meat dishes, and is a main source of flavor in sausages. The culinary uses are endless: fried sage on roasted squash, mixed in with soups and pastas, delicious with caramelized onions on pizza–the possibilities go on and on. Just a few plants will provide enough sage to eat fresh and dry for an entire year.
