Default Dotson's Grow List 2019

I have planted some of my favorites in a Jiffy 36-count seed pod tray, with a few already coming up. I'm a real fan of Terhune, so I'm growing both the RL variation from AKMark (5.42 lb), and the potato leaf variation from Marianna's Seeds. I was also impressed with Aker's WV last year, and I'm again growing a variety from Harrison County, WV that is locally called "Big Czech". It is a very large beefsteak, and was brought to WV by a gentleman with Czech ancestry. I may put seeds up in a future offer for sharing with the community. I'm also giving Big Zac another shot as well, hopefully to get some small pumpkins

Spartanburg:

Right with you in Virginia - some of my first seeds popping out. (I graft so it takes another week or two for full size plants.)

I have Aker's on my primary list - - but the list is too long like most years -- you must really like it?

Aker's WV is a great plant and tomato. It is a very stocky plant, with sturdy thick stems, and pretty resistant to most things. Tomatoes are large, free of defects, and have a strong tomato kick, not too sweet. There's a reason it made Carolyn's top 100 book!!

Karen- I made the mistake of only planting one last year, had to try again!

Thanks to all for the comments!
