I have seeds of a dutch heirloom: Pisum sativum 'Blauwschokker' see picture.
In your area you can sow them in March or April, not later. The seeds are viable for several years.
It needs to be staked (6-8 feet high). It can be eaten fresh (the best) , it can be frozen raw, cooked and canned or dried.

Also have seeds of Cyclanthera pedata. Not european, but a very tasty veggie, that can be eaten raw or stirred.
Sow indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Needs to be staked, about 6-8 feet high.

Also have Claytonia perfoliata, Crambe maritima, pumpkins, Pastinaca sativa, Rheum rhabarbarum and Taraxacum officinalis. Will have more at the end of the season.

Would like to trade for other veggies, wildflowers or something of my wishlist.

Don't understand your question about the 'light green thing' . Do you mean the Cyclanthera pedata?
For more info on that one see here http://www.rain-tree.com/caigua.htm

If you meant something else, please explain. English is not my motherlanguage, so I might misunderstand you.

Sarge,

Most on your list I already have. But I would like to try the Beta vulgaris Ruby red, the Lycopersicon lycopersicum Black Cherry and the Turkey beans. But please give me some info about the last one. How high will it grow? What is the best time to plant them in zone 6?
