Time and space this year to turn my attention to some F3 Beefsteaks from my crosses now that the hearts and the KARMA cherries are nearing completion.
there are a number of very promising tomatoes in this group and I am interested to see how some of them do at F3.

photos in this link from my Northern Gardener page.

Karen I could only see the beefs on the first page - and a pic of True Colours that popped up - WOW they are so gorgeous, so nice to go back to F3 and all the fun of diversity at that stage.
I hope you decide to post some pics here too, because we (non-Facebookers) can't see them otherwise.

I second the motion for pics being posted here. Won't join Facebook!

ps: KARMA pink germinated very well!

Everyone facebook member or not can see my photos because northern gardener is a public page.
I find uploading more than one photo at a time here takes A long time which is why I post the link instead so I do encourage folks to look at The Link.
I will just post a few here to tease

Thank you everyone, Sirtanon here is the interior of that one. It is one of the best. Phenomenal flavour thank in large part to that dark green shoulder. I would be comfortable to put that one up against any of the best blacks. It is shown overhanging a 10” dinner plate
There has been plenty of disrespect shown elsewhere online toward me and my little “housewifely amateur” breeding projects.
Here on Tomatoville, for the most part I have found a lot of encouragement and support which is great . Watch and see what else this amateur “housewife” has in the works.
I’m just getting warmed up.

They look wonderful, KarenO.

So sorry to hear you met with disrespect! I can only say they must be jealous.

I have been in awe of your dedication to growing your tomatoes out.
You not only made the original cross that these tomatoes came from, but you are lovingly selecting
the very best and are making sure they are genetically stable before others are allowed to grow them.

Seriously? What is wrong with people?!? The tomatoes look fantastic! I'm excited for KARMA pink this summer!
