No response last time, so I'm trying again now that everyone is thinking
about what varieties of what to plant this season...

I'm looking for more of these solid-stemmed vine crop varieties.
We just ended a BAD year of early heat, drought, and every kind of bug, and
kiew yokes (oriental bitter melon) made it through untouched, acorn
varieties and sugar pie pumpkins did fine, birdhouse gourds and
muskmelons/cantaloupe were OK, and everything else (5-12 varieties each of
summer squash, winter squash, melons & cucumbers mostly died, some we got
one or two weeks of harvest from, most none (and I protected, re-planted
over and over, nothing helped).
So I want to expand my list of "hardys" - got any suggestions? BTW, those
kiew yokes were AMAZING! I love them, but my husband thinks they're too
bitter - but then again, he can eat pickled red habaneros and I can't.
