ROBERTA BAILEY MARITIME CANADA/ NEW ENGLAND

"Amplissimo Victoria" soup peas — Nutty, delicious flavor; prolific 5- to 6-foot-tall vines. Great cold-climate substitute for garbanzos. Let dry on vine, then shell and dry before storing. 80 days.

"White Russian" kale — Silvery leaf, white ribs, sweet and tasty. The best producer of young shoots and new growth in spring on over-wintered kale.
