dear folks,

so sorry for the website downtime - we had a 5 hr power outage this morning, it has been a brutal weather here in the last few days.

We were unable to move due to the weather, and hoping to resume the move after all the snow melts, targeting March. At some point, the servers will have to move also, and there will be some outage related to the move, may be a day or two. But the biggest issue will be the internet quality at our new place, we are far enough from the city, and there is no good internet available in the area. Stan is trying to figure out alternative options, but i do expectr TOMATObase to get slow after the move

Tatiana

Tatiana,

I use the dates under your photos to help me choose which seeds to buy. I add a couple of weeks, of course, since I'm on the coast and you're inland.

Sometimes you will have two quite different dates, like early August and mid-September. They are usually different years, which may be the reason, but I wonder if the earliest dates are from plants you've grown in a greenhouse.

The dates under the photos are the date when the picture was taken. The fruit may have been picked up a week or more earlier. And we may have already harvested other fruits before that, so I would not go by the date alone

And we are on the coast too, but higher in the mountains, so our temperatures are 3 degrees C lower.

Here is one example: Dragon's Eye which you called "midseason".

Your picture of sliced tomatoes was taken August 5, which I would consider "early" and some pictures of whole tomatoes were taken September 14, which would be "midseason".

So would the August 5 one be from a greenhouse?

nope, both of these are grown in the same garden location.

We continue picking fruits and taking pictures throughout the season.

Oh. Thank you. I guess it is obvious there will be a second order coming.

By the way, we call a variety 'early' when the first fruits mature before mid-July. Anything maturing after mid-Sept is called 'late'. 'Midseason' is in between

Default So excited :)

I am really excited and want to plant the seeds I ordered from you right now! I am looking forward to growing my paprika peppers, and really interested in the determinate oxheart, since it will be the first I have tried.
Come on spring...... hurry up and get here!
