Landrace: locally-adapted diversity
I had fun at the farmer's market today. I appreciate the seed that the hoggy swap has contributed to my landraces. The tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash all had contributions from the swap. Of special note, there is a mixta squash on the table!. Thanks to whomever sent the seeds. This is the 5th year I have planted mixta squash. Last year I finally harvested one fruit. (The seeds are in safekeeping. Too safe to find again.) This year I have at least three types that are mature enough that I think they already have viable seeds, and I expect about 3 more weeks of growing season before frost.
