These are some of our ongoing projects:

Planting dates apply to the Parker County area and refer to the planting of seed unless otherwise indicated.

Listed cultivars were selected for their productivity, resistance to common diseases and adaptability to Parker County conditions. Proper watering, fertilization, weed control, etc., are necessary, however, if the desired results are to be achieved. Cultivars are listed at random, not in order of preference.
