Your garden looks awesome, Karen! I always admire your creativity in the way you do crosses and look for special properties worthy of stabilization. I hope you have a wonderful bounty this year!

Abnormally Cool temps slowing things down for blooming but the plants are looking good and handling the rain well. . Assorted examples of my various dwarfs in progress. F1-F8

I found your True“ true north “ here. Since you are good with your Greenhouse, I now know why you walk your plants outside during warm weather days for the "Sun and Bee can do their things". I will grow smaller plants in my Greenhouse to be able to walk them outside during warm days.

I saw a Tall Planter Hanger on "This Old House". It would save you space ,as It was tall and able to hang many plants on. I look at those guys all the time hoping to introduce them to my Historical Home on Land Major Butler gave my Great Grandfather during the Civil War.

I just have a very small greenhouse Joyce. Very useful for seedlings but I grow about 300 plants every year, many full sized indeterminate and so the large majority of my plants are grown outdoors beyond seedling stage.

Beautiful plants. Eagerly following! I just wrote an article about The Dwarf Tomato Project for local Master Gardener newsletter. Seems like it takes a lot of patience!

Tomato breeding is definitely an exercise in patience .
To clarify if there is any confusion, my “ short and sweet”dwarf breeding projects are not part of “ the dwarf project” and none of mine were bred using any of the “dwarf project” varieties because I intend for mine to be different from the excellent dwarf varieties that are already available.
There are all sorts of non dwarf project dwarf tomatoes out there to use and all of mine are crosses between dwarf and non dwarf varieties in an effort to combine various qualities from different tomatoes that I like.

Close to stable with some, I will likely release several this year. The first released, last fall, is called “Sweet Baby Jade” a green when ripe cherry.
I post a lot of Facebook and Instagram if anyone interested in following those,

Default Some photos

Hello everyone, I haven't participated in the forum for a long time because for work reasons I don't have much time now, but I still have tomato plants as always, I show you some photos of my two "sweet baby" plants, a very resistant plant to diseases and with many flowers, it has adapted very well to the climate of Spain. I'm lovin 'it:sí:.
Nico.
Thanks Karen.
Nico

Beautiful Nico! Your sweet Baby Jade plants are among the first I’ve seen from the seed sent out. I hope you will enjoy the fruit. Thank you for showing them to me !!

Here's a poor picture of my 2 Sweet Baby Jades. Sorry for the green background (a volunteer potato in my compost pile that has gone nuts). I only got them outside 2 weeks ago. They both have fruit beginning and are in great condition.

Nice Pictures, Amen!!
My husband is shocked that My Cold Set Tomato Plants have Big Tomatoes on them. So far about 3 inches wide. That's big for a small tomato plant. So the Tomatoes on the Cold Set are Bigger that my Red Robin Dwarf Plants. But my Red Robin Dwarf Tomatoes was the fist Ripen tomatoes of the Year for us. These two will be grown in my Greenhouse in the Water, being easy to take out in wrn days. .
