HAVE: Tomato Seeds

Have 2004 Heirloom Hawkins tomato seeds for SASBE.
The tomatoes are a red (approx. 1 lb.) fruit - great in salads, sandwiches, sauce and eating straight off the vine.
The seeds have been saved each year from a plant originally discovered more than 30 years ago by my father-in-law. My Dad took over growing the tomatoes & now he is getting on in years & would like to see the seeds distributed to as many people as possible to keep this incredibly delicious tomato growing.
In honor of my father-in-law this tomato was named the Hawkins tomato.
Please e-mail me for my address.
Thanks,
Jay

Dear Jay_8b
I would like to grow your father-inlaw seeds, if you have any more. I think it is wonderful that you are doing this for him, Amen!!

I will keep his Hawkins Tomatoes in my family forever, as my first Heirlooms, and pray for him.

RE: HAVE: Tomato Seeds

I have already started a seedling to try growing this tomato again this year.

I also sent some of the original seeds that were sent to a gardening friend of mine in NC. If her plants are successful this friend of mine will spread this Hawkins heirloom to more people.

Here is a seed group I am in on facebook group, dedicated to seed saving and sharing, if anyone is interested. See link Below...

I have not grown these since 2009, I wanted to let people know that I will be growing them in 2014 and I will try to get the seeds out to more people as well as provide pictures of the plant.

RE: HAVE: Tomato Seeds

I included a link to my gardening group on Facebook. I will be growing a plant from seed originally obtained by the thread poster. I plan on seed saving and continuing to give these out to any interested people.
