    I start melons, squash, and some tomatoes from seed every year- I love to try different varieties than the same standards the nurseries usually carry.   In recent years there has been alot more selection for tomatoes and peppers which is nice, hopefully they expand other vegetable selections as well.   Some new things I'm growing this year include 'Moon & Stars' watermelon, 'Pomodoro' tomato, 'Napoli' zucchini,  'Crystal Apple' cucumbers, 'Haogen' melon, 'Banana' melon, 'African Horned' melon, and 'French pickling' cucumbers.

    For warm season growing: we start several varieties of (mostly) heirloom tomatoes.  For winter growing: 'Goliath' snow peas are a favorite - crisp and sweet edible pods - we eat them right off the vines when the peas are almost full-sized.  In fact I'm going to grab a few right now!
