Episode-2563- Thirty New Plants from Baker Creek to Grow in 2020 — 8 Comments

  1. I got a 503 error about a half a dozen times while putting about 10 items in my cart today… TSP almost broke the baker Creek site lol.

    Yay us!



  2. Great episode, Jack.  Thank you.  I waited until today and ordered the multi-colored spinach, Chinese python snake bean, Chinese pink celery, dwarf tamarillo, red malabar spinach and Texas hummingbird mint.  Baker Creek looks awesome and I’m excited to try these.

    Surviving and thriving in CA!




  3. A citrus to consider for hot, dry areas may be the Desert Lime (Citrus Glauca), an Australian native it thrives in very hot and dry conditions. Produces grape sized limes that can be eaten skin and all, apparently very nice, but mine have only just gone in. Don’t know if they are available in the US.


  4. Great episode Jack. I can’t wait to plant the 6 new items I ordered in the Spring, Chinese Pink Celery, Mexican Sour Gherkin Cucumber, Texas Hummingbird Mint, Kiwi Blue (Cerinthe major purpurascens) Honeywort and the Orchid Cream Nasturtium.

  5. Did the Keto diet path take you to the Lakanto monkfruit sweetener?  Is there a stevia or a monkfruit possible at your place?

  6. I can and have grown stevia. I think monkfruit requires complex processing to make it really usable the way you use it when you get it from like Lakonto.
