It's a traditional heirloom. I got mine from an collector who only chooses the older variations. You won't find this in seed catalogs, or very rare if
you do. We had a seed trade at our local extention office and she and I are buds and she shared me quite a few. PM me if you are interested.
The strawberry plants are putting on some blooms! We have a freeze coming in the next day or so, so am going to cover the bed with sheets, lol, now
that did sound funny.
Set out 9 flat Dutch cabbage, and 9 red cabbage, guess the hubs wants slaw this year. Now get this....I canned slaw mix last fall as a test from a
canners website I belong to, still looks great, the sealing process didn't cook the cabbage at all. Did a sweet pickle syrup with celery seed with
cabbage and grated carrot and a very little green pepper. And hasn't turned to kraut, lol.
Found heirloom romas and Amish pink tomatoes. This year will be my first time with lemon balm, sampled a tiny leaf when I found it, omg is that just
like a lemon candy! Hubs Also started cuke seed, we ran completely out of bread and butter pickles this winter, who'da thunk, So more pickles for me
I dehydrate carrots and greenbeans aka leather britches, tomatoes and fruits in bulk. I can't trust my freezer cause in the winter our power goes out.
So canning and dehydrating with minimal freezer use for us.
Cheers, will let you know if the strawberry blooms freeze...
