Post  Ginger Blue 9/27/2016, 8:05 pm

Recently, while apple picking at a nearby orchard, I was pleased to discover a vast assortment of freshly harvested heirloom tomatoes for sale in the farm's market.  Thinking I would save seeds and grow them, I purchased several varieties of tomatoes I've been wanting to try, and some others too tantalizing to resist. I recognized most of the varieties by name, but by the time we got home and unpacked the bags, I couldn't tell which tomato was which variety. Embarassed  Knowing I couldn't go wrong with the selections I'd made, I decided to have some fun and create a "mystery mix" of the seeds. Cool

Fast forward a few weeks and the seeds have been harvested, dried, and are ready for planting next year.  I have an abundance of these "anonymous" gems and will be happy to share them on a first-come, first-served basis with other adventurous gardeners in the group. What a Face

Curious?  Here's what you need to know:

- There are no cherry, purple, or green varieties in the mix.  All are bi-colored, yellow, orange, or red; slicer, beefsteak, stuffer, or ox-heart.  Included are seeds from Pink Brandywine, Yellow Brandywine, Hillbilly, Yellow Garden Peach, Wapsipinicon Peach, Moonglow, Azoychka, Gold Medal, Russian Oxheart, and a few yummy others I don't recall.  cutesie

- The seeds are mixed together and un-labeled. While it's likely that each pack (20 or so) will contain several varieties, I cannot guarantee that all listed will be represented in every envelope.

- Assume they are open-pollinated, indeterminate, and mid-to-late season

- Free to good homes, no swaps are required

Send me a PM if you enjoy "good" garden surprises and would like to join the fun!  A SASE would be appreciated, but if you can't swing it, don't let that stop you....  okay I love you

Sounds like an exciting experiment. I would try some but I am the only person in California who can't grow decent heirloom tomatoes. I'm trying hybrids and those with numbers in their names! Razz

Those all sound like great varieties- and I love a good mystery- so bring it on. Plus- I'm used to mysteries- or surprises as we sometimes call them- since I am terrible at labeling my seedlings. No need to label here I gather Smile

Sanderson, the seeds are free, sure you don't want to try again?  Given the informal nature of the effort, maybe the plants would feel less pressure to perform to their pedigrees, and do better in the long run...? Wink 

Mimi, glad to hear from ya!  Please PM me your address.

YAY! Very Happy

Mimi2, I dropped your seeds in the mail today.  I don't know how long it will take for them to get to you; please let me know when they arrive or if you haven't gotten them within a couple of weeks.

Hi Avinash. Welcome from Atlanta, GA (SE USA).

I'm sure Ginger Blue will be back in the next day or so. If not, you can send her a private message by clicking on the P.M. tab at the top.

Can you tell us about your garden?

Hi,
I am from India.
I live in Apartment and actually don't have much space for garden. I have a small balcony/ terrace where I grow about 20+ plants in containers. I grow few peppers, heirloom tomatoes some flowers, melons, Eggplant and whatever possible to grow in containers. While peppers grow easily in container, heirloom tomatoes have some limitations and fruits are smaller compared to one grown in soil, but flavour is excellent. Most of my seeds are from Baker creek. I have almost 50 varieties of heirloom tomatoes + few peppers, pumpkins, squashes (all heirloom). We do not have frost in this part so i am able to grow vegetables year round.
All seed packet contain about 30 seeds and I can plant only few at a time + I save my own seeds. As a result I have some excess seeds with me which I would love to share for varieties I don't have.
Thanks for your time
Avinash

Avinash, Welcome to the Forum from California, U.S. glad you\'re here Many of us also purchase seeds from Baker Creek. BC has some seeds from around the world which is a worthy endeavor. We have another member from India, rajmahendra, who may want to exchange seeds with you. He has a SFG on the roof. https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t20956-tryst-with-my-first-diy-sfg-in-india
