Tomatoes for 2013

It’s funny, my brother and I must be reading each other’s minds. Last weekend I was mentioning to Chris, my husband, that it was that about that time to start our tomato seeds. I then saw that Curtis had already started his over the New Years weekend. So, this last weekend we got ours started. In all we planted 30 varieties. It seems excessive but we had a lot of old seed that we wanted to start up so we could have a fresh batch in the coming years. We grew some tomatoes last year but our last big year was in spring of 2009 when we lived in Florida, before we went backpacking on the Appalachian and Florida Trails.

Micro Tom
Tiny Tom—-might be the same as above but unsure. Seed packets were listed differently.
Everglades Tomato—-We actually discovered this one on our own our first year in Miami while walking along a canal where along the edge were some tomato plants growing among the shrubs.
Black from Tula*
Fantome du Laos*
‘Fruit and Spice Park’ tomato…I can’t remember anything about this tomato other than we must have liked it because we saved the seeds—-from the Fruit and Spice Park Redland, FL
Red Brandywine*
Pineapple Bicolor*
Togo Trifle *
Striped Togo Trifle—-I think this must have been a mutant in our garden that we saved and wanted to grow out to see if we could repeat it.*
Stump of the World*
Schimmeig Striped Hollow Tomato*
Sabre Ukranian*
Arkansas Traveler*
Peche—-not sure if this is going to be a duplicate of the Juane Peche or not, our unopened seed package from where we bought it just says Peche. Not sure if the link I put is going to even be what grows….we’ll see!

What’s on your tomato list for the upcoming growing season?

    That’s awesome- we only have three, and they are all variations on Roma (the only ones that Tom likes!) I can’t eat raw tomatoes, although maybe I need to try one fresh from the garden.

    The peach ones look interesting. I may have to order some to try myself.
