What are your 3 most anticipated plants this year!

I guess my three newest ones are Kossak Hy. kohlrabi which gets 10 inches across and keeps its sweet delicate flavor. I make cole slaw out of them! +++The tanja cucumber that grows up to 14 inches burpless and can also be grown in a greenhouse! +++My third of many is the pineapple tomato which I have a 1000 seeds coming!
+++
I even have a cosmos flower called Pink Popsocks that only gets 18 inches high and can also be grown in pots! Its pinish red border with white inside the flower. Lets hear what every has to look foward to growing?
I enjoy fishing ,gardening and a solar greenhouse! carpet installation repair and sales for over 45 years! I am the inventor of the Bobber With A Brain - Fishing Bobber!

I greatly expanded my trellis and potato space. So my green beans, and potatoes are what I'm looking forward to the most.

The season is too short here for 8 foot tomatoes. 4-5 foot maybe.

I really look forward to peas, turnips, and spinach in the spring.

Too early to tell for me yet.
I was going to give up on crucifers this year due to too many white butterflies and cabbage moths, but I just came across a purple variety Brussels sprouts... 8) Probably more experiments with C. moschata varieties and corn. Wasn't going to grow beans this year but Rattlesnake looks interesting... and so on and so forth. People here can tell you I could never just name three once I get started.... :D

I have noticed that the bugs don't bother the red cabbage nearly as much as the green types.
