Hi Gardenhappy,
We are just delighted to have you join us. It's our first year and we are learning the ropes with the expert advice of some of the other festival moderators, so I think it will be fun and pretty great. We'll work on perfect later!!!
Welcome to you and your garden club.
Please by all means spread the word.

Are any of these saved or all new from sources?Reason for asking is that I would be more interested in plants "climatized"to our extreme Florida growing conditions.I know the Kumato would be from saved seed since they are not availiable at seed companys.

Yellow pear, Brandywine, Green Zebra all saved from my garden. Yellow pear matured into something quite good, after about 2 months of mushy texture. Green Zebra is 3oz and I find it sweet with a complex flavor because it has a little acid in it. Rest of the country doesn't seem to like it, but everyone I have given plants to and grows it here says it is very good. I think it does well in our climate.Super prolific too, very strong vines, bushy growth habit indet.

Default Date change for plant swap

Due to a very large group that can't attend the plant swap on Nov. 3rd ,we are having a date change to Nov. 10th to accomodate them.
We hope this does not cause any inconvenience, and we are looking forward to some fun, and good tomato talk.
