I admire what you have done-your passion and the lengths you have gone to further tomatoes. I have looked up many a tomato on your website and your carefully organized info has been invaluable. Thank you and may you enjoy your change.

Thank you so much folks, you are so wonderful.

I will write more when the things settle down. It has been crazy busy here.

Completely understandable as it takes an INCREDIBLE amount of time selling tomato seeds.
I have nothing but respect for what you have accomplished in the heirloom tomato world.
Enjoy retirement.....you more than deserve it. Jeff

Tania, whatever direction you choose, just know that you have left your mark on the tomato seed business for both integrity and honesty, and incredible service. So many of my tomatoes were ordered from you and you have always answered emails when I had questions.

We will miss you but hope you will still check in from time to time on TV with your knowledge and advice. Your “hobby” as you called it - is a huge undertaking with so much responsibility - so good for you for making the decision to step away from it. Enjoy your retirement. And your chickens too!

All of us at TV will be following your decision. Now I really have to start saving more seeds! You have done thousands - I only save a few and it’s work!

Bless you and Stan and thank you for all you’ve done for us!

Oh my my ! …..

how my " hobby" was dependent on there being a Tatiana's website and dependable seeds …


Most likely I will have to get more serious about seed saving and organization for the private stock ….

The question remains.... Where will we ever get such comprehensive info. data site and stock of such hard to find varieties …. ????

I am hoping to make one last order then before …...for the Ark.





I wish you both a happy and healthy retirement .

I have 3 suggestions as to where you can buy a HUGE # of different varieties and here's the first

http://www.tomatoville.com/showthread.php?t=39407

The second is Sandhill Preservation and here's a link to his new site

https://www.sandhillpreservation.com/vegetables

The third is to consider becoming an SSE member and getting the Annual Yearbook with thousands of listings of different varieties.

Without any explanations on my part if it were me I'd consider either Dale Thurber's site,link above,or Sandhill, link also above, or both.

If you look in the plant and seed source Forum,you'll see other possible sources as well, but you said the MOST sources for rare varieties so that's what I went with, viz,your request.
