After reading Joseph's Landrace Gardening last year, I was truly inspired. I decided to make a start with cucumbers. I planted a row mixing three different varieties and collected as much seed as I could. This year, they are doing well; healthy and happy so far.

My first landrace experiment - cucumbers


producing well


1st picking with Matt's Wild Cherry Tomatoes

They are healthier and more prolific than any variety I've grown before. And they have excellent flavor. I feel like I'm off to a good start!

Sounds great! I hope to do the same next year. I normally sow similar plants away from each other in case deer, pests, or disease attacks one, they hopefully won't find them all. After reading threads on here, landrace makes so much sense and could nearly solve 2 of those 3 concerns.
