Franklin St Garden Update

Two two Waltham Butternut squash plants growing beneath a rickety pole bean teepee.

Matt's Wild Cherry tomato.

Costoluto Genovese Italian tomato. I hear it likes the Mediterranean heat but we shall see if the Pittsburgh heat is enough to make it real tasty.

Costata Romanesco zucchini. Another Italian friend.

Malabar spinach, not an actual spinach but a heat loving vine eaten more widely in China, Vietnam, and India than in the
US. This cultivar is Basella alba Rubra and has a pretty red stem.
