Karen, someone like you will most certainly create awesome tomatoes. Because you CARE. Go, girl!

I can not wait to taste your pink cherries (PK). They germinated nicely, looking healthy and strong. Thank you for sharing them.

You have all been kind. I do appreciate it and will remember. Here are some more F2 possibility photos,
I am still deciding which ones to start with. I think a group 4 different ones in order to devote the attention to each that is necessary, three or four is a good number) The others will wait, I’ll get to them. It’s hard but fun to have choose.
A good problem to have really.

Karen- I think it is terrific you have a passion and you are creating absolutely wonderful tomatoes that you generously share with others who also share your passion. Thanks for creating and sharing your progress and pictures. I really admire what you are doing and will happily grow any cross you make and release. Keep going! Many of us here can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve.

Karen, I realize I haven’t been on TV in awhile and forgot to check in with you! You are amazing - I need to get me some of those seeds ASAP -! Germination time is around the corner although by looking out my window in snowy Montreal you would never know it.

Thank you for all your hard work and for sharing it with us!!!

I seemed have missed the boat on that Karma Pink offer.

I am also getting that overwhelming feeling of "seedlings to the gunnels" .

I am comparing the PL Yablonka Rossii (seeds from Tatiana's) and Matina/Tamina

and for me .....They seem different ! yikes ! .

The utility of container gardening is my preferred modus operandi . Which of your developments would be a "best guess" If I placed it in a "Royal " 10 gallon container ?


P.S. since moving to the south island I have found there is no $30.00/annum community garden lots like you had before in Alberta ........

Building lots in Nanaimo are about $300k + so if one wanted to dabble in an old fashioned "Victory garden " (1/2 f a modern lot ) one needs about $150 000.00 !

sad .

Well if you are dedicated enough to water through the summer draught I am sure you can grow a KARMA pink in your 10 gallon pot. But if you are pressed for space keep an eye on the KARMA project thread for the next ones. I will have F7 seed of the other colours and F8 of the pink for the fall.
Up to you,

KarenO
