Salt, have you contacted the people you were going to sponsor or are you still sponsoring them? If you aren't going to sponsor them, maybe other sponsors can be found.

I won't know until I get a reply PM.

My first year, 4 people sponsored me, so yes, everyone get more sponsors. I'm sure Tormato would like seeing even more seeds

Sending anything in is fine.



And, what I would like seeing is PACKS of tomato seeds, not the seeds themselves. It's been quite the year here, where most tomatoes were large, plentiful, seedy, cracked, and fairly tasteless.

My best estimate is ~250,000 saved seeds.
So, I guess that makes me a sponsor.

I no longer have seeds for these - I gave them away a few years ago - but here are my notes:
Sub Artic Plenty - not early, poor taste.
Siberian - early due to small fruit, very poor taste, almost bitter.
Siletz - not early, taste is good
Manitoba - ok, but nothing special, weak taste
Oregon Spring - not early, taste is good

Here are a bunch of early determinates you may want to consider which I have seeds for. The earliest of the bunch is Independence Day from Livingstone Seeds, which is similar to Glacier.
Robert, thank you for the critical evaluation of the tomatoes I chose. You helped me a lot. I have to reassess my choice. I'm probably going to want the Mostly Mystery Silver Fir Tree only.
If you can send me the seeds of some of the varieties you mention so I would love to. I looked at Tatiana's TOMASTObase, and I think they would be best for me in my cold bed Sasha Altai, Belyi Naliv, Klusha, Krainiy Sever or Independence Livingstone.

Nan, Thank You.

I don't know Tormato/Gary. A person that wants to give to others - that alone is respectable. Tormato also is giving us a chance to share tomato/beans/etc. Tormato is giving us a chance to be ourselves. That is special. Thank you Gary.

The amount of work Tormato does for the swap is astounding. He's great.

I have a few handfuls of garlic bulbils that I will be sending in. Since these may be late to arrive for planting this year, I am wondering the extent of interest so I will be able to gauge the dividing and packaging.


PM or post to the thread, your choice. I would like to mail shortly, just one "mystery" is still drying.
