Is anyone bringing tomatoes to the swap?

tomatoes4ever(7 Fairfax VA (DC))April 20, 2007

As you can see from my name, I love tomatoes and that's all I care about. I don't have any official swaps set up with anyone, but quite a few people have asked me to bring extra tomato plants for them. I'm happy to do so.

However, if no one else is bringing tomatoes(so I can get a few I don't have) then it won't be worth it for me to travel all the way to the swap(it's very far from me).

Thanks Guys!

Hi Steve

I'm sorry about your Roma tomatoes. But good news, I'm growing some Roma VFN. If I end up coming to the swap, do you want to trade me a Celebrity for a Roma?

I have planted about 35 different heirlooms> Only plan on one of each in the garden so there will be surplus of most.
I have promised some already.
are you looking for anything in particular?

I'm deifnately looking for Cherokee Purple. My cat killed mine. Also, good paste tomatoes like Opalka and Heidi. Other than that, I'm looking for anything Red, Pink, or Purple that has good flavor and is a good producer.

Thanks!

I have Nor de crimee,Prudens Purple and Black Prince in the black/purple range. Oh,and black sea man.
This is my first time in almost 20 years to grow tomatoes so I have no clue what will produce well. This is totally an experiment to see what does well here on the hot muggy shore.

I will probably have a couple of extra cherry tomato seedlings.

I'll be bringing some tomato seedlings. Unfortunately I don't know the varieties because my toddler pulled the tags from most of them. They're probably a mix of Marianne's Peace, Black Cherry and a few others that I can't remember offhand.
