We've been planting presprouted (soaked overnight) 'Sugar Ann', 'Sugar
Sprint' and 'Sugar Flash' over the last two weeks.  Maturity 50-62 days,
depending on the catalog.
200 more row feet going in today.

Not growing any 'Sugar Snap', as it is has little mildew resistance.  Ann
and Flash had much less mildew in the High Tunnel this spring than Sugar
Snaps outside in the field.  Flash far outperformed Ann in the HT.  Seeing
who shines this fall.

We have row cover for the occasional frost in Oct.
