Great crowd, great tomatoes, always enjoy viewing these events ..........

Table 4 of particular interest - the large heart shaped pink and large green behind the yellow - do you recall names?

Any crowd favourites?

I'm afraid it will be some time before I have any ripe tomatoes here in the PNW

PNW this is Rodger the tomatoes pictured were all grown by me, I had 110 varieties at the show Bobbie who took the pictures brought spoon and some cuttings for me and Fert1 and some of her friends also brought some I can't recall all off hand, but one in particular was Bloody Butcher and it was a hit. I would say the most popular by far was DR. CAROLYN everyone couldn't believe such a small tomato and a ellow at that could have so much flavor. I will post more and some more pictures latter I am working tonight and haven't recouperated enough yet to do any posting.
The heart shaped tomato is Bulls Heart, the green is either Green Moldavan or Max's Large green

Great pix! Looks like y'all had a great time. We were in Charlotte and considered
the drive, but alas, didn't have the time..... now I wish we had!

110 varieties is great! Do you happen to have a list of them all? It'd be great
to hear everyone's comments on what was good, surprising, and the bad.

Congrats Rodger!

It looks like everyone had a great time!

I plan on attending more regional get-togethers in the future and hope to make yours next season.

Actually, it wasn't our group that brought that one, (I don't think). I know one of my friends brought some Rose de Berne, Orange Strawberry, Black Prince (I think), Aunt Gertie's Gold, Flammee, Black Cherry and possibly a few others. It is a possibility that she brought the Bloody Butcher, but I don't remember her mentioning that variety. She brought most of the tomatoes that we had, as most of mine have succumbed to wilt.

it is a large tomato average size 2-3lbs as seen in the pictures and surprisinly very good. Craig Lehoullier recieved the original seed from a man in Tenn. Knoxville area I believe. Seed is avaible from Victory seeds.
