Fall 2007 tomatoes...

I started, in paper cups with plastic cup liners, the following tomatoes for my fall crop:
  • Nepal
(OP) 80 days
A high quality, intensely flavored, meaty, deep red 12-ounce beefsteak. This Himalayan heirloom produces well even under cool growing conditions. Indeterminate vines.
  • Black Plum
(OP) 70 days
Tall indeterminate vines produce sweet, deep mahogany morsels perfect for backyard grazing. No other tomato quite like it--we are pleased to offer this rare and very special variety.
  • Jetsetter
64 days. Lycopersicon esculentum. (F1) Plant produces good yields of very flavorful 8 oz tomatoes. Tomatoes turn red when mature and have a very rich tomato taste. This variety matures very early offering those in the South a great early harvest. Excellent in salads or sandwiches. Disease Resistant: VFFNTA. Indeterminate.
These varietals were recommended on GardenWeb. The 'Nepal' and 'Black Plum' seeds are from Swallowtail, the Jetsetter I got off of eBay.

I have also started various Torenia from seed (they germinated very quickly -- maybe five days, though the seed packet warns of slow germination) & a bunch of sunflowers for my daughter's flower garden.
