    Hello; thanks for offering this thread. It's a great resource for those looking for seeds. I'm debating doing container gardening and a seed variety I'm looking for evades me.

    This is what I'm looking for. A bush-type variety of cucumber; it's called the spacemaster. Unfortunately it's not available where I live; compact bush varieties of cucumbers aren't available PERIOD where I live.


    Hi there!

    I am not sure about the spacemaster cukes you are looking for, but bush cukes are fairly common where I live. If I don't have any in my inventory, I will take a look at the Burpee display at my local garden center when I am in there on Monday (March 30)

    Diana, would Heirloom Pumpkin - Rouge d'Etamps be the same as the Cinderella Pumpkin?

    Morning SA,

    Yes, they are the same.
    They are large, redish orange pumpkins and are more on the flat side as opposed to round like your typical jack-o-lantern type pumpkin.

    This is a photo of last years pumpkins, shortly after they were picked. As the days and nights get colder, they change colour into a deeper reddish orange.

    SA,
    The colour got even better. Don't know why I didn't take a picture then. They were a deep redish orange, and man are they heavy!!!!!! The one on the chair was probably about 15 or so inches across.

    I'll be planting them again this year too.

    I am looking for a bean that is grown primarily in Maine. Its called Marifax. It is used for baked beans (bean hole beans). While it is widely sold/grown in Maine, I cannot find it available in any seed catalog. SO if there are any Maine gardeners out there who have a few Marifax seeds to share, I'd be happy to trade.

    SA, I'm so sorry to hear.

    I know exactly how you feel. I miss mine too. She was the most fantastic lady I'd ever met. I loved her dearly, and even though she's been gone for more than 20 years, I still get choked up thinking of her. icon_cry.gif But....smile a lot too. icon_smile.gif
