Hi all. Happy New Year! I am currently working on a plan to grow on a
community garden plot for the coming year. 100% of the crops will go to a
local food cupboard to feed the needy. I'm looking for recommendations for
tomatoes, potatoes, and spinach/lettuce/greens:
1. What type of tomatoes produce the highest yield for you? I'm thinking
of growing mostly plum tomatoes for saucing. I'd imagine sauce would go a
long way at a food kitchen. I've grown 'Orange Bannana' and 'Speckled
Roman' with great success. Does anyone have any other recommendations? I
would want indeterminate varieties.
2. Potatoes- I'm thinking just a basic yukon gold and maybe one other
variety. I haven't grown potatoes in a long time- any suggestions?
3. Greens- I'd like to grow head lettuce mainly. I won't be there
everyday to harvest and I'd like to keep things as simple as possible.
I'm just starting on this project so please excuse the lack of details. I'm
hoping to get donated seed and supplies. This plot is located outside of
Philadelphia in zone six on the grounds of Temple University.
Thanks for any help or input!
