At Radio Park, we love all our plants. We do, however, love some more than others. Here's a list of some of our favorite plants, most of which are either available at local nurseries, or which you'll be able to purchase at our Friendship Night Plant sale in May.
Bean - Burgundy Yard-Long: An Asian-type bean. Grows on long vines, and produces many beautiful beans 18 inches long. Use like any other fresh beans. Part of our Three Sisters garden.
Corn - Strawberry Popcorn: Another part of our Three Sisters garden. Produced 2-3 2 inch long ears on each plant with pretty red kernals. You can microwave popcorn on the cob in a paper bag or strip them and use in a hot air popper.
Pepper- Jimmy Nardello: This is a pepper with great pepper taste without the heat. We either add them to chili or slice into little rings and put on salads. Yields were heavy, and at the end of the season we dried ours and ran through a food processor, making a powder we add to winter dishes.
Tomato- Gold Medal: A large indeterminant type, yellow streaked with red, inside and out. Excellent mild flavor and very productive.
