You should have the flower awards by now.  Here are the vegetables:

Carrot 'Purple Haze'  F1
This is the first imperator-shaped purple carrot.  The 10-12 inch smooth
purple carrots taper to a point and reveal a bright orange center when cut.
Noticeably sweet flavor.  Cooking dissolves the purple color.  Vigorous
upright plants reach 14-16 inches in height and spread. Normal growing
conditions are adequate for abundant yield.  Grow in large containers with
herbs like parsely and sage.  Harvest in 70 days.

Coriandrum sativum 'Delfino', Cilantro
Improved, aromatic, edible herb.  The plant looks different.  Fernlike
foliage that looks more decorative than other cilantros.  Easy to grow and
leaves can be harvested in 4-5 weeks. Grown in full sun, reach 20 inches
tall.  May be grown in containers with annuals or other herbs.  Harvest when
seeds turn from green to brown.

Capsicum annuum 'Carmen'  F1
Improved Italian-type sweet pepper, early harves - a week earlier than
comparisons.  Distinctive horn-shaped peppers have wide shoulders tapering
to a smooth point.  Upright plant reaches 28 inches and spreads 16 inches,
perfect for patio container.  Flavor is very sweet when ripe red, whether
raw or cooked.  Widely adaptable because of early maturing and productive in
a wide temperature range.  Peppers are ripe 75 days from transplanting.

Capsicum annuum 'Mariachi'  F!
Superior fruit size, improved earliness, marvelous yield, and unusually fine
flavor.  Improved cone-shaped pepper.  500-600 Scoville heat units, a mildly
hot chili pepper.  Fruit can become more pungent when plants are stressed by
hot weather or lack of water.  A fleshy pepper that ripens from yellow to
red is mostly used in the yellow stage.  Vigorous, attractive 18-24 inch
plants set fruit continuously throughout the season.  Produces an abundance
of 3-4 inch peppers when grown in gardens or containers.  Harvest can begin
w/in 65-68 days of transplanting.

That's all for  2006
