March 10 column: Vegetable varieties

Vegetable varietiesHere is a link to my column in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: So many veggies, so little time. It is about many of the newest vegetable varieties available through garden centers and online. I’m going to grow several of them this year and am anxious to see how they do.

The photo above is of ‘French Gold’ filet pole beans from Renee’s Garden. I’m familiar with the golden bush beans but had never seen them available as pole beans, which I prefer to grow. Renee’s Garden graciously allowed me to use their photo.

If you are looking for a great, local seed selection, be sure to visit Northwest Seed & Pet. You will be quite impressed!
