In the Nebraska area this has been a down year for tomato harvest. We still had plenty of varieties to sample and our small core of yearly participants and a few new faces gathered on a beautiful day and "talked tomato". These were the varieties we were able to grow and sample and discuss (and cuss a little). Of the list there were no real spitters for the first time in many years.

PaulF: Where could I get seeds for G.G's Yellow Belgian? Or the plant, if seeds are not available? I'd love to try it out for myself.

Hastings: The seeds for G.G.'s came from the SSE member catalogue. I used all the seeds sent to me and I will reoffer and when I save the seeds this year I will send some to you.
