If you could only have one variety of a particular veggie what would it be. If you could only grow one cherry tomato, which one. Only one slicer? Only one sweet pepper? Only one hot? Only one cucumber, summer squash, winter squash, etc........ Maybe we would see some recurring varieties that we might try. Thanks.
