I concur with AlittleSalt, even though I didn't officially participate in the swap (I don't think I did, anyway, but I still got loads of seeds from you; it was a great moment opening that envelope). You'll still be on TV, though, right? You often have good things to say, it seems.

You have done all of us a huge favor with your swap. I think we have all been quite amazed with the results. Thank you so much.

Ditto with the thanks, Gary. You are simply amazing. I hope you have a beautiful autumn, with enough time off to enjoy a few breaks and a sweet and bountiful harvest.

If you find yourself missing that bathtub full of seeds that only means you'll enjoy it all the more when you've got the time again.

Big hugs wafting your way from the North Atlantic.

Thank you for all the time & effort you've put into the swap over the years. I hope you can resume the MMMM sometime in the future.



Now I'm going off to figure out what to do with the 572 packets I've put together for this year's MMMM...

I still can't believe you managed to organize and run the MMMM swap for so long. I will never forget the excitement of receiving the envelope with seeds from all over the world!
You did a fantastic job. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Thanks for all your hard work in running the swaps. I was lucky enough to participate in 3 of them and have an amazing collection of seeds thanks to you.

Gary, over the last few years, you supplied me with seeds that will last for at least half a decade. Take a break, thank you for all your hard work!

Gary, what they all said! You made Tomatoville so magical!

Due to your generosity, I should have new seeds to try for many years to come . . . but I'm hoping for MMMM next year!

To the enabler who enabled us to be enablers too,
A well deserved respite from relentlessy counting all those seeds. Thank you for not only all the wonderful tomatoes you personally crafted, but for all the fun!

That's one of those memories. The Jaws thing was fun

I second all the replies for a respite for you. You have enabled many of us to try new varieties of tomatoes, beans, etc. that I had never heard of and grew just for the name. Many of them became my favorites for flavor. Thank you for spending so much time just for us, we so appreciate it all.

My plans would be to do the swap next year, if everything goes right.
