- Early Silver Line Melon - I guess it's a Korean variety.
- Cream of Saskatchewan Watermelon - A white fleshed watermelon, could be neat to try!
- Hops Watermelon (the one that came from China labeled as hops, but was actually watermelon seeds)
- Tomatoes - I planted 18 seeds from the 2015 mix in hopes I get some of the rarer varieties that I failed to save seed from (Pink Sunshine and Nicholaevna Pink to be specific). I used all different sized seeds to give the best odds of a good variety.
For the last two years I've put the tomatoes in the back in-ground garden, and I've done a big variety in the front raised bed. If we end up staying this summer, I plan to do some crop rotation and put the tomatoes in the raised bed, which means I'm a lot more limited on space. My 8-foot by 5-foot raised bed can give me 40 different varieties in a square-foot garden set up, each square with anywhere from one to sixteen seeds each. With tomatoes I will only be able to fit about ten plants in there, total.I planted about 18 seeds to assure we'd get enough to germinate.
Of course I'm really hoping we will move to that awesome property... but we still haven't heard back from the local bank. I have no idea why they need twice as much information and are taking weeks to get back to us, when the other bank could get all of the information they needed and confirm our loan pre-approval over the phone in a matter of two hours. I'm hoping it means they will offer us a higher loan amount so we can make a reasonable offer on the house. Tony has tomorrow off and I'm hoping he will get the chance to call the loan officer at the local bank to figure out if they have any updates or maybe a timeline on when to expect an answer. I'm finding waiting to be incredibly frustrating. At least as of today the house is still marked "for sale" which means they have not accepted any other offers on it yet.
