The Sample Seed Shop Tomatoes
 
Hi All,
I feel sort of odd doing it, but others have done it so I might at well announce that I finally have all my tomato seeds tested and up for sale.

Very nice site, good descriptions and pics!!

Thanks Remy, I ordered a few... I was particularly fascinated by Roughwood Golden Tiger. I have been wanting to try an angora foliage variety for fun. Would it be correctly described as a wispy, potato leaf, angora foliage, striped bicolor? That would surely be a load of recessive traits:dizzy:

Thanks Remy.....going now to look,

remy December 8, 2009 09:59 AM

Lavendulafleur and Penny,
You're welcome.:)

Icelord,
Thanks, I've always loved taking pics, and many people who have met me that have gone to the check out the site say the writing has my personality. I hope this is a good thing! :lol:

Kevin,
Thanks for the order. Roughwood Golden Tiger is an odd one. The leaves do have mild serration to the leaves almost like they are trying to be potato leaf but couldn't quite do it. It was a fun variety to grow. I'm not lying about the flavor either. It really is very good. People who like meaty tomatoes love it!

Website looks GREAT Remy!! I've visited a few times now.

Every tomato I wanted is out of stock but I picked out some awesome flowers.

Thanks for the heads up AND the great prices -

Great site! Ordered a few new-to-me and some old friends too. Like Kevin, I was intrigued by Roughwood Golden Tiger and your description decided the matter. Looking forward to seeing some of these new babies in the garden next year. Actually looking forward to anything that ISN'T snowing and -22C...

Very nice site!
Been watching for the update, so I pounced and scored some old familiars and a couple new ones to fill in yesterday.

Nice website and like the informalness (is that a word?)of the tomato descriptions; I ordered a few. Any chance of Ernesto and Rinaldo in the future?

remy December 9, 2009 09:03 PM

Thanks for the nice comments everyone! If you ever see something wrong though, don't hesitate to tell me:).

Austinnhanasmom and KYGreg,
I do definitely plan on growing Rinaldo again next year. If I had realize I would have such a run on the seeds, I would of grown it again this past year. I'm still mulling over whether to do Ernesto next year. I think I really should since it is such a rare variety. It is so hard to decide! I truly am a tomatoholic who wants to grow everything.

Salix,
There is an awful storm blowing into town right now as I type! Spring is so far away.
Remy

austinnhanasmom December 9, 2009 09:18 PM

AHHH Remy -

I want ALL of your tomatoes that are out of stock:))

remy December 9, 2009 10:44 PM

Austinnhanasmom,
Oh you mean my inventory list! Well, that's going to be along wait:twisted:. Seriously though I do have some things in tradeable quantities. If there's a few things you really want and I have enough to spare, maybe we can work out a trade or something.
Remy

Barbee December 10, 2009 05:35 AM

Looks great Remy! Placed an order yesterday for some perennials to winter sow.

austinnhanasmom December 10, 2009 08:37 AM

For sure we should trade Remy!!

I am waiting for a few orders and trades to arrive. I'll contact you (after the holidays) and have an updated list.

THANKS

remy December 10, 2009 08:44 AM

Barbee,
Yes, I caught the email address on the order! Otherwise I would of never known. I didn't realize you loved flower gardening too. Thanks for the order.

Austinnhanasmom,
After the holidays is good, much calmer then.

Blueaussi December 10, 2009 10:01 AM

Just got my order from remy, what great service!

remy December 10, 2009 05:19 PM

Blue,
Thanks!:) I had no clue you sent in a order. I would of threw in Korean Dark Green for you!
Remy

ddsack December 11, 2009 07:00 PM

:yes:Thanks for the quick service, Remy! My package came just 7 days after ordering. I'll enjoy trying the bonus freebie Grosse Cotelee, sounds like a good one!:yes:

remy December 11, 2009 08:21 PM

DDsack,
I'm glad you liked the freebie. I try to play match the freebie to the order sort of like a psychic seed bonus:lol:.
Thanks for the order,
Remy

I have more than one email address and use the main one for my account when I use my credit card for consistency. The bonus seeds are of a variety I've never heard of, so it will still be fun. I'm just sorry you were out of the Figleaf Hollyhock, I'd like to give that a try. I ordered more flowers than anything else. You have a really nice selection.

k3vin December 12, 2009 02:01 PM

Thanks Remy! Great service, and carefully packaged seeds. I received seeds 4 days after ordering:yes: Thanks also for the Eckert Polish bonus seeds!

Kevin

remy December 12, 2009 08:22 PM

Blue,
You ordered flowers! I've been getting a lot of flower orders unrelated to this site so I would of never known. Great that I sent you a variety you never heard of. I know you aren't growing it. I'm glad you like the selection. You're not the only one disappointed that I'm out of the fig leaf hollyhock. I started selling those earlier in the year and ran out. I was really surprised. It is sometimes hard to guess what will sell. They are a great variety though. I'll have them again next year.

Kevin,
You're welcome:).
Remy

Tania December 12, 2009 09:35 PM

Remy,

I just came across this thread and checked out your seed adventure - what an awesome website! Excellent selection, beautiful pictures and very professional writeups.

Outstanding job! :worthy: :worthy:

Tania December 12, 2009 09:41 PM

Remi,

I see your Eckert Polish is also a beefsteak (same as mine) - what was your seed source?

I have seen this variety described as 'oblong' (but have not seen any pictures with different shapes), and I was always wondering which really is the 'true' one.

The beefsteak version has a very good taste, I agree!

Tania

remy December 13, 2009 08:38 AM

Hi Tania,
Thanks so much! It is a complete 180 from your site, but that is a good thing. Your site is like an encyclopedia which is great! I refer to it often:).
My Eckert Polish originally came from DeerPark a few years ago. It is confusing for growers. I've found, as you know, that there are a few tomatoes like this that are named the same but definitely different depending on the source.

Remy,

DeerPark is the one who described it as oblong back in 2007. Hmmm. Perhaps it was a mistake in description...

My seeds came from two different sources, one of which was Jennifer from Ontario (and I think she got the seeds from Carolyn, but cannot be 100% sure) - both grew identical and produced the beefsteak type of fruit.

Tania

P.S. I am inclined to think that the 'real' thing is the beefsteak :)

ruet December 13, 2009 05:05 PM

Hi Remy,
I noticed on the site you mentioned that Sunflowers (and perhaps other goodies) will be made available some time this winter. Could you narrow that down a bit? December? January?

Also you said "If anyone wants something else, please let me know soon!"
Maybe I'm too late for "soon", but I'd buy at least one of each of the following:
White Sensation Cosmos "Purity" — Reputed to be more attractive to beneficial predators than your average Cosmos
Annual Sunflower "Lemon Queen" — The one they're using for the great sunflower bee project, seems to provide blooms all season with plenty of pollen, (messy yes, but a feast for bees)
Also Eva Purple Ball, and Big Beef F1 — need no introduction

I plan on buying Druzba and Sungold from you, but if I can get all the seeds I want for next year in one go, so much the better.

Love the idea by the way. I'm gardening on a small rooftop space as are all my friends... really can't make use of 40 seeds per pack.

Hi Ruet,
I answered you on the site, but I may as well answer here too:). I'm glad to get the input. It makes it easier to decide. I do plan on having all the sunflowers and other annuals listed in January(crossing fingers that I don't curse myself.) Lemon Queen was one of the sunflowers I'm planning on having. I can get 'Purity' Cosmos which is the white sensation variety. I can also get the hybrid Big Beef. I'm not sure about Eva Purple Ball, but I will try.

Tania,
Very interesting about the description from him. I don't think I ever got one. The beefsteak is so good I would think it is the real version too:).
Remy
