The 2005 Haist, 2294 Noel and 2051 Marshall should be on some short lists.

I have to decide how many plants will have space and time for. 2416 Haist will get the number one spot(i may only grow one full size), then after that either the 2116 or 2016 Lancaster, the 2261 Schmidt, 1875 Mendi (for 150 sq ft plant). I might sneak in one of my 1109 seeds for orange. How many plants depends on bobcat availability to increase topsoil depth. 2020 is still a building year for me.

If I had a 2145 McMullen ...... :) just dreaming!

The 1884 Crews got me thinking that the 2185 Brandt needs to be featured in more crosses.

My four competition plants: 2185 Brandt, 2517 Haist, 2624 Willemijns, 1625 Gantner.

Was hoping to squeeze in a couple of genetics plants, but given the current circumstances, will probably use that space for regular vegetable gardening.

1501 went to Pumpkinman Dan.

Some impressive seeds above, usually when years start tough like this one for everyone, they end well the 2nd half.
