Good plant

I wasn’t able to start any of the seeds indoors, but the few that I planted outside started and grew without trouble. I have all of three plants for the time being but next year I’ll plant all seeds outdoors without starting. I figured since I live right next to Isleta they just like the outside conditions more than anything I can manage indoors. I’m going to try to get more farmers in my area on board with planting this variety.
