Karen ,I salute you. As my growing space gets smaller I am looking more and more to dwarf plants, however some are still quite big.You seem to be breeding just waht I like..well done. When your seeds are ready for sale.. you wll be hearing from me..thank you for the work you have done.

I have been off the forum for some time so maybe I should go back and read all the posts rather than just go ga ga over the pictures..I may have missed something good

Everything looks wonderful; You are such a pro.

I loved the bumblebees on the purple flowers.

In your red Dollar store containers, what it on the top of the mix?

Thank you! Not a pro, just a gardener who loves growing tomatoes
That’s just pearlite in the mix. Tends to settle to the top a bit when watering the promix HP since it contains a fair bit.

Another group, these are F4 striped yellow and striped red cherries. Very bushy little dwarfs. Finer less Rugose foliage. Tried a couple in hanging baskets and I’m happy with How full they look. I put two plants per basket but likely should have kept it to one.
Unnamed as yet._

Again in the F4 gwr and amber saladette micros, the blooms are showing extra petals and sepals with symmetry. Very unusual and all of the blooms on all of the gwr plants are like this. Same on most of the amber selections which are taller.

This group of bushy less Rugose dwarfs look to have potential for baskets

Those make really nice basket tomatoes, can't wait to see pictures with ripe fruit! What was your seed starting date for those in the last pics?

And finally, these dwarfs out in back. Saladette yellow striped red I called fire opal and the yellow on yellow stripe I called Midas touch. Will see what the F4 looks and tastes like of these selections as well.

Your plants look really advanced, in my opinion! You'll have oodles of tomatoes soon enough.

Great project Karen, if your full sized tomatoes are any indication, I can't wait until you release these! My first microdwarfs are starting to turn today, exciting times!
