I'm expecting to bring muskmelons! They are my favorite crop of the year: Sweet as can be. Smelly as anything. Taste is fabulous... If you think that you don't like cantaloupes, it might be because you have only been exposed to grocery store cantaloupes. The difference is so dramatic that it's like they are not even the same product. I call my fruits muskmelons to highlight the difference. If you like bland boring food, my muskmelons are definitely not for you! These were the first landrace crop that I developed. The first couple of growing seasons I selected only for ability to grow in my climate. The last 5 years I have been selecting for glorious musky smell and taste.

Also expecting to bring:

Honey in pint jars and 5 gallon buckets,
Beeswax,
Honeycomb,
Green onions,
Garlic,
Tomatoes,
Tomatillos (enough for salsa),
Okra,
Tobacco,
Pumpkins,
Buttercup squash (my favorite tasting squash)
Crookneck,
Zucchini,
Peppers,
