I got Gary O Sena tomato seed from them for 2016. They were one of only a few places I could find it to buy. From what I've read about the tomato here on tomatoville, I believe it grew true and is also on my 2017 grow list.

The sandwich on the right, in my avatar, is a Gary O Sena tomato slice.

Yes I am.

They also do bulk seed production on contract as I remember, but for which seed co I can't remember.

I looked at the tomato offerings and decided to look at what they said about two of them that I know well.One was Dr.Carolyn,the other one was Neves Azorean Red.

Yes,I saw my name there but nothing, really, about the varieties themselves.

I thought the price for organic seed was way too high. For instance Glenn Drowns also has organic certification for some of what he grows out,indicated by OG, actually says Certified Organic Seed) in the description, and he charges the same whether OG or not.

Just my own opinion knowing that there are I think several places who don't charge that much for OG seeds, but others here would know those other places quicker than I would since no time to do searches.

I was looking for Black Giant and ran across Restoration Seeds. I ended up getting seeds from Baker Creek. Black Giant was on the BC web site but not in the catalog. I do have an order for Sandhill ready to go out. My favorite black is Black Early and it is about impossible to get here in the states. My cousin who lives in Canada brought me several packs. So I am going to have to save my own seeds.
