Great. I hear that it is a great tomato that i hope to grow next season. My wife and i are busy building raised beds this fall and filling them. Looking forward to growing about 60 tomato plants next year.

That probably is the case, I did not have any problems with my seed, and I use the same seeds that were sent. I will have some F8 soon, the F7 selections were very tasty, and had great yields.
I am growing out a few under a light this winter for seed, if anything exceptional comes up I will send some out.

Good luck

It's fine Mark, really. The bottom line is to have a plant grow right? So I got three of them that should be all I need. I'll probably only grow the one strongest one anyway. I think they were all from the plant 11 I don't think 41 had any viable seeds that I tried which is very sad. Anyway don't even give it a second thought because the plants that I got look very strong and I'm very much looking forward to growing them.

Healthy looking babies! And love the bread tray carriers- beyond sturdy and so easy to clean, too!

Thank you Suzy. Those crates will outlast me. I just hose them down, they stack too, storage is easy.

47 Earthboxes and a few 7 gallon pots with barrier plastic under. No nematodes can get into the pots through the plastic bags.

Great variegated foliage, and look carefully, variegated stem too! And my cute little Cacao plant doing well with new growth after Irma attacked.

Beautiful plants marsha. Have you ever used bill's conduit structure for tomato supports. If so what did you think of it? I built one this week and am going to try it along with single stem pruning and lower and lean. I don't usually prune at all but i will prune this coming season to hopefully control foliage diseases better.

No, I have never used a conduit structure, growing in Earthboxes lends itself to cages better.
