Fruity tomatoes sound right up my alley. I have to admit though, the green outer and red inside looks kinda gross

Too bad none of the current generation of parents had yellow fruits. I hope to get that resolved this growing season.

I'm giving a presentation near Seattle Washington

Food security through common sense and traditional methods
Snohomish, Washington
Tuesday, February 13th


I'll stay around after for a question and answer session about landrace gardening. Promiscuously pollinating tomatoes are fair game.

https://www.facebook.com/events/189291078334806/

Then I'm going to Corvallis Oregon to attend the Organic Seed Growers Conference (Feb 15th and 16th), and present at the Open Source Seed Initiatives open house (February 18th).

Hoping to meet some of you at these events.

Too many dozens of years, too many thousands of miles.
I'm looking forward to reading a summary of what you said and heard on these occasions, I remember you've already given us a recording of one your talks. A written version would be welcome if it requires less work.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation !

Someone has made arrangements to live stream it on my Facebook page. I think that also makes an archive.

While I was on my recent trip, I really enjoyed making a podcast with Paul Wheaton and Jocelyn Campbell.

Default Lofthouse varieties in Austin

Started these Lofthouse varieties on Jan. 22, 2018. Each seed that was planted did germinate. Of the two Ot' Jagodka plants,
the one on the right was grafted to Supernatural rootstock. Observe their difference in size, see how grafting sets the plant back. Jagodka root system seems as vigorous as that of the rootstock. Will compare roots at the end of the season to see if there were soil-borne problems. Thank you Joseph for all the promiscuity, promiscuous...er, ah, you know...cross-pollination.

So far I'm impressed with the toughness of your varieties. Fern and Ot'jagodka survives a near frost with minimal damage. Big Hill seems the weakest of the tomatoes I got from you. Several went down to damping off and a few to frost but the few that survived will be good stock to continue forward. My Lofthouse melon came up fast and are very uniform compared to my grex. They are forming true leaves now. I will be planting everythi g over the next 2 weeks and will continue my reports.

BigVanVader: Thanks for the grow report. While Jagodka was the winner of my frost/cold tolerance trials, it wasn't particularly frost tolerant, but it grew really well in cold weather. Big Hill is descended from Jagodka.
