Yes, this is a bit excessive, but I am obsessed with tomatoes and my children. We got started on both about the same time, so having my children involved in the process is even more dear to my heart. I started 4 years ago with my oldest daughter, and yesterday with my second. I love sharing this activity with them. It's been a joy to see them as excited and interested and also developing a pallet for the varied and gorgeous tomatoes out there.
This year I did not buy new seeds from Tomatofest. I love the huge variety they have the 90% or more yield from the seeds. It is a bit more work than going and picking up plants from the nursery, but it's so worth it.
I look forward to updating and sharing how this years crop will do. As I mentioned in my previous post, last years heat was disheartening for the tomato crop. There is nothing remotely OCD about me, but when it comes to my tomato seeds, I'm over the top!
This year (so far) the varieties are:
Black from Tula
Eva Purple Ball
Black Cherry (the most popular so far)
Candy's Old Yellow
