Just a few comments.

Someone early in this thread said that Fusarium does not infect the seeds, and that fermenting the seed is what to do. And that is correct since Fusarium is only found on the outside of the seeds.

Pathogens such as the common bacterial ones as well as those viruses looked into,as well as Viroids, and now the Potato Spindle Virus from Australia, which also infects tomatoes,is also here in the US.

Some say they follow up with a bleach treatment,I never did as is true with many of my tomato friends as well.

Fact is, that several of us researched the oxidative methods of Oxyclean, Comet, etc, no one,to date has shown that it works for TOMATO seeds. Other seeds like pine cone,yes.

If you have a thrift store near by, get a cheap piece of sheer curtain material to provide a bit of shade for those plants at least til they get bigger. If you have any in the house, maybe your wife won't notice if one or two missing for a few months.

Gonna keep my fingers crossed for you. Hopefully something will grow or work out.
I have around 20 bed sheets that I use for shading. Our first born grandson named them dragons because they look sort of like Chinese dragons when being used.

From my personal experience on using organic fertilizers - I haven't seen any difference in the brands. I mostly just wanted to use it up to get it out of the garden tools and garden related barn.

Good luck with the new seeds and inspirations.

I can rotate once and then I have to rotate back to the same containers.
It's a little closer to Green Acres out here. The 45'x45' main garden will be used to grow things that are supposed to kill RKN starting this fall with the second winter of growing Elbon Cereal Rye. This PDF explains it. http://30r8p93i26e4rjv9qo3ulokei.wpe...Cereal-Rye.pdf

Nobody here is more deserving of these seeds that YOU. I hope that they work out and give you something that tastes like a tomato. If not, Oh Well.......
