The 2010 List…linked for your convenience

I managed to get 41 varieties started this morning (forgot to plant 4 others)  before the snow began.  I have no clue how I managed to end up with 45 types of tomatoes, but it’s too late to worry about that now!

Not all of the varieties are true heirlooms, but the vast majority are.  Some are hybrids designed for container gardening, while some are supposed the be the tastiest new hybrids out there.  I’ve got red, pink, yellow, black, green, white, orange and bi-colored tomatoes this year…quite the rainbow!  Sizes range from big slicers to tasty snacking cherries and pears and everything in between.

Unfortunately I’ve only had a pinch of seeds (less than 15) of some of the varieties and some of those are spoken for in my own garden and my family’s gardens (my mother and brother are tomato lunatics now!).  Depending on germination rates, I may not have any of some of the varieties to sell.  Don’t worry though, I’ll have more than enough varieties to keep your garden full and you’ll be the talk of the town with the fruits of your garden this summer!

Take the time to peruse the list and click on the links to learn about these great fruits…maybe it will keep your mind off of the SNOWNAMI!

A special thanks to Tatiana Kouchnareva for a great tomato site and selling some awesome seeds!  A big thank you to Tomato Grower’s Supply for their expansive seed selection and great service.  Kudos as well to Remy at The Sample Seed Shop for offering a great variety in small quantity so we can try some new types of tomatoes.

    I am in the process of transplanting variegated plant lines. I should have regular leaf and potato leaf forms of red and yellow fruits.

    I intend to sell them at the Shawnee Mission East Earth day Fair which is at 75St and Mission Rd April 16th,

    Last year I planted 12 different varieties, for a total of 15 plants, of tomatoes that James raised. I have a very small back yard in brookside, which is all garden and an orchard. I started planting my vegetables in raised beds, that James suggested, and what a drastic improvement! I must have picked around at least 3 bushel baskets of tomatoes. (approx 180-200lbs) I only use my home made compost, manure, a light mix of nitrogen and only one application, and a sprinkle of epsom salt. I trim the bottom foot of the tomatoe leaves, and I don’t use any pesticides. It was the best crop of tomatoes I’v had since 1982! I also planted a variety of wonderful peppers from James. Great Job James!!
