I think I remember a Wyoming gardening group from last year? If you have time, ask them if they're looking for anything.]
EEEP I forgot to watch the date as I waited for input from the group. Sadly only two got back to me in time so my list covers just 3 of us.
Tristan is looking for rainbow carrot blends, flowers(the request for zinnia seeds came from her) the early melons, and she wants to try some dry beans this year but has at max a 90 day growing season.

Marge has had to move to an apartment and has limited space for container gardening so she is mostly after flowers(she loves big marigolds) and wants to try a dwarf tomato plant in a bucket and a friend has promised her space for the early watermelon.

Basically we will try anything short season that is tolerant of cool nights as we search for easy to grow fruits and veggies we like. We are at least a mile high in altitude, many are over 6,000 ft in altitude so yep it can be fun and challenging some years.

Hopefully you'll like the Siberskaya Roza watermelon as much as we do. I didn't note on the label, but the vines are relatively compact, about 5 feet or so, so it doesn't take up a lot of space for a watermelon.

Indian Woman Yellow (said to originate in Montana) is the earliest dry bean variety that I've trialed, 65 days from planting to dry in a good season. I don't know if I still have any, or whether some are coming in to the swap. I have an experimental half runner bean that matured in 63 days. But, with back-to-back crop failures the past two years, these beans are now 7 years old, and may no longer germinate.

My recommendation for Tristan is to sow a few beans indoors, about three weeks before direct seeding. Plants should be outside during warm days, inside during cold nights. Transplant at the same time as direct seeding. Then find out if all of the effort is worth it.

Hoping I don't jump the gun, but we're in the process of closing on 5 acres of mostly hayfield. Already warned my husband if I get it in my head to plant 4 acres of tomatoes, I'm gonna do it & there's nothing he can do to stop me. But in actuality I'm starting small since I'm beginning with a blank slate, the acres of tomatoes will come later.

tomatoes:
Girl Girl's Weird Thing
Royal Hillbilly
dwarf varieties
Any super prolific container variety

non tomatoes:
Cosmos (not yellow or orange, I have plenty)
Zinnia (all colors)
Marigold: tangerine, lemon or red gem
Mint (all varieties)
Basil (all varieties)
Any flowers

peppers:
Italico
Chervena Chushka
Marconi
gypsy
chocolate cake

Dwarf Tomato Wishes:
Newer variety Dwarf Red/Pink slicers on the taller side.
Next summer will be different as my tomato garden will be limited to 5 large containers and a small spot for full sized cherries(Sungold, Esternia and a red or two). It will be fun to grow dwarf tomatoes again after so many years. I had a love hate relationship with them during the early years.

A late season windstorm took down parts of the wood fence on three sides. I'm not the only one as I am on the list for replacement hopefully by mid-summer 2022. I usually attach cages all along the fence to brace against the wind. This year I'm going to try and grow a crop of tall peas in their place before the installers and materials arrive.

I missed the hybrid thread option. Checking back to see if I can find may need another final call.

- Lisa

Edit : Found the hybrid thread, initially read and overlooked as I had my F1 mainstay cherrries. Interested in Chef's Choice Bi-Color 1 seed if available please. I promise I will not drop it in the heating vent :roll:
