Default West Virginia Sweet Meat

Is this post about West Virginia Sweet Meat?

I don't have any seeds of this and never have.

Now I'm confused.

Thanks

I'm so sorry, Neil.I was up way too late last night and was too sleepy to have been posting. Of course I know you live in Canada- how many stamps have I saved and returned to you?!

Thank you, thank you for the tomato pictorial. Incredible. Now I'm telling my husband that I want us to look for a place that has enough of a yard so I can grow most of these. LOL We both love meaty tomatoes, and you have so many that look like they fit our requirement... gosh you have a wonderful journal here. Again thank you for taking the time to post all the pictures along with the information.

So glad you enjoyed it and there were a lot of meaty ones this year, yes. With a bit of planning and creativity anyone can cram a lot of tomato plants in a small area. There are a lot of threads here with lots of amazing ideas.

Kath this is an amazing tour of your garden AND what I like the best about your pictures is that the tomatoes are a real representation of what each variety is all about. Not some tomato catalog (picture) where each tomato was hand picked placed in a studio with perfect lighting and a spritz of water. Your tomatoes are REAL and I like that.

This is an awesome collection of pictures and descriptions. Taking all those pictures took a lot of work and keeping the pictures organized, more work. Kath you are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Sheesh, Joe, thanks, but I think that compared to the busy lives that so many other Tomatovillians seem to live, mine is quite simple. There are many who have businesses, work full-time, have young families, etc. and still manage to trial more, grow more, organize projects/seed swaps, sell/donate plants/produce, and find the time to post about it here. Those people are amazing- I just have a lot of time on my hands.

Glad you enjoyed them- perhaps you would like some seeds? I don't have very many varieties left but you're welcome to the ones I do have. Send me a PM if you're interested- then I could actually take some credit for adding to your "growing problem".

Hi Kath! really beautiful photos as usual, what were your sources for:

Copper River
Eastham Pink
Work Release Paste
Hawaiian Pineapple

I am trying to get my seed orders in order

Also, I remember you posting about sweet potatoes last year can you tell me your source on those as well, thanks in advance!

I second for Copper River! Your post makes me want to try it. I almost picked up a CR transplant last spring. I am now kicking myself for passing it up.

Thanks, Melissa!

CR - lurley
EPH - Tatiana's Tomatobase
WRP - fortyonenorth
HP - eddie46

Not much help for the 3 that I received from generous Tomatovillians, but Tania's website also lists commercial vendors for HP- I think there are quite a few. Not sure if anyone is selling the others yet. I'll be trying to save more seed for WRP for sure and also for CR if I grow it again this year.

I was able to obtain slips of Beauregard from a local Agway several years ago and since then I just sprout my own from saved tubers.

Happy planning!

Awww...Christy, that is too bad. Try posting in the wanted section maybe- I don't know if there's a commercial source for it yet.
