Anybody have any new items this season? I have a few new varieties, but I think only one actually new thing that I'm planting - Radish Pods, which are what they sound like, radishes gone to seed! Something used in Indian (and probably other) cooking, and it sounds like something to try.

I have a lot of new tomato varieties - about the same number as old types:

Barossa Fest Dwarf
Burracker's Favorite
Coorong Pink
Kelly Green Dwarf
Kelloggs Breakfast
Pink Oxheart
Summer Sunrise Dwarf
Sunset Falls
Sweet Sue Dwarf

And the old faithfuls, and some old ones I will try again, in earthboxes:

Amish Gold Slicer
Arkansas Traveler (grew years ago)
Big Beef
Green Zebra
KBX (grew years ago)
Sweet Carneros Pink


Green Tiger
Porter (sort of a large cherry)
Sweet Treats

Only 5 new peppers this year - I'm up to 13 that I simply have to grow every season!

Aji Dulce
Black Pearl
Ristra cayenne
White Habanero


Big Jim
Chocolate Habanero
Gold Bullet
Hanoi Market
Thai Dragon
Thai Nippon Taka
Thai Vesuvius

And one new eggplant - Shiva - with 4 oldies - Neon, Ichiban, Hari, and Green Beauty.

More new beans this season, to add to Blauhilde and Blue Lake pole:
Monte Gusto
Whitner White
Edamame - Beer Friend

And to try next to my favorite okra - Emerald - I have Gold Coast and Jing Orange. I'll see how they compare.

For Sweet melons, which usually don't do well here, I have Athena and Hale's Best. I'll find out...

Bitter Melon - Green Giant I had to try a rough variety, as the ones from the Northern regions stop in the middle of summer.

No new herbs, so far, but it's still early! And no new greens, either.

Anybody else have their gardens mapped out yet, and have anything new they are trying?
