These are from the Johnny’s catalog. I’m just passing them along.

            “Brown bean seeds germinate better in cool soil than white seeds.”

            “Soil innoculants are only viable for a year.”

            “Harvest Brussels Sprouts from the bottom as soon as they mature. When sprouts are ½-3/4 inches, pinch off the plant’s growing tip to force remaining sprouts to develop evenly.”

            “Honeydew melons are especially sweet when grown in areas of cool cloudy weather.”

             (In my opinion, if you’re living in an area of cool, cloudy weather, move. Grow some other melon.)
