Thank you Dan ! I’d love to see that. The world record holder growing my little dwarfs, how fun for me!
This one at F6 so shouldn’t be much longer. The green potato leaf cherry Sweet Baby Jade is Growing F7 so might be ready to release in the fall depending on what Teresa and I think this summer. I have it blooming in my greenhouse so hopefully will have photos shortly. Waiting for some fruit to set

Karen, Did I tell you that I grew a 6.22 lber. from Zena's gift seeds that you so kindly sent me to try out. I'm trying a couple dwarfs this year for the first time,,so we'll see how they do. I've got one side of my high tunnel that's to short for indeterminates so I thought I'd try dwarfs, I'm anxious to see how they do.

That’s fantastic!! I’ve long thought it had the potential for a big one. Do you have a picture?
I will be sure to keep you in mind as soon as I have a stable dwarf. I’d love for you to try them

Karen, sorry I don't have a picture, they were on a SD card and that card got corrupted, so I lost everything. I'll anxiously await to try some of your seeds!!

Some of the 2021 dwarfs in the little greenhouse. The biggest plants are Sweet Baby Jade full height blooming and setting some cherries which will be gwr.
Potted up all the rest of this year’s varieties dwarf and indeterminate and moved them out to the greenhouse yesterday
I’m pleased with the progress so far. About 4 weeks to plant- out time I believe

Thanks! These are in Promix. I’m using a new to me organic promix soluble which I’m liking so far as well

Seedlings coming along well and getting close to ripe fruit on Sweet Baby Jade
I think it’s going to be a great year

Everything is planted or potted up now. Growing well and many are blooming. Sweet Baby Jade on the verge to ripen any minute now. I’ll have to count the total number of dwarf plants from my breeding projects growing this year but it should be around 75. They will include micros, small and large dwarfs in cherry, Multiflora and saladettes on mostly potato leaf dwarfs with some RL selections as well. I’m excited to see how everything turns out this season there are some really interesting and original ones in the mix.F3-F7

Hi Charley
There’s another thread for the big ones most at F6 only Chinook at F7 because it got a head start at Fred’s who grew the F6 over the winter. I think I called the thread KarenO’s 2021 tomato garden or something close to that . Those plants are all just getting going planted out last week. I’ll post some photos on the weekend maybe a video on northern gardener too.
Happy with the plants so far and it’s finally supposed to warm up some on the weekend too so that’s a welcome change with nights finally over 10c
I hope your season is going well so far?
