Let's see, we used Beefsteak, Roma, Mr. Stripey, Sweet One Million, Sweet One Hundred, those yellow pear-shaped tomatoes (can't think of the proper
name, but they're like healthy candy
), and many others over the last 2 years.
Just for a little perennial surprise, I planted three Stevia
plants, which went crazy and grow to over 8 feet tall every year. Stevia is a
natural sugar substitute — you can pluck the live leaves and eat them, and it's like eating a glass of sweet iced tea. Delicious. We use it in
recipes that call for sugar.
Stevia flowers in the late summer and early fall, and it is a bee magnet
. In fact, bees get drunk
on the stuff and just lounge around
the Stevia for hours at a time — they even spend the night sleeping in the flowers!
