Fun new map

I'll be putting this up on soon, along with a piece about heirloom fruits and vegetables. But in the meantime, feel free to peruse. Each heirloom variety of fruit or vegetable is indicated on the map at the town where it was discovered or developed. If everything uploaded properly, you should also be able to read a short description and get a link to a seed catalog or other source of information. If you're in New England and planning a garden this summer, please consider planting one of these local lovelies. (Note: The map looks a little funny in the Blogger formatting. Clicking on it will enlarge, clicking on a marker will open up a small screen with the description/link etc.)

what a cool idea! Any reason you did it in Platial instead of regular google maps?

Habit. Platial used to offer collaborative mapping when Google didn't, but it looks like Google has that now, too. But I don't see an option in Google to upload a spreadsheet to map everything at once by address or town name, which is a big advantage for Platial. Maybe it's there, but I can't find it. Anyway, I'm used to Platial and it works for me.
