Marsha, thank you for the seeds of Danna’s Dusky Rose. I am growing one plant. It gave 22 tomatoes (not done yet). Two were more than 20 ounces each. Average weight is more than 11.5 ounces. I picked almost 15 pounds. Taste and look excellent.
Thank you. Love that plant.

You're welcome Ella I love it too. I think it's amazing how you keep track of every tomato and how much it produces and what weight you got.

Another enabler trade.
But I won't be tempted. Maybe just GGWT and couple more.
I Have planted rye grass in my tomato patch. It is getting real nice green.
It won't be til Feb to get started with germinating. But it is good to be thinking about spring.

Oh, and while I'm at it... wow, now THAT is a list, Marsha. I'm jealous. How much space do you have to grow in that you can plant that. My list is tiny compared to yours.

That is very clever! The KARMA project is worth a read. It's namedgir the 2 of us in the ptoject: KarenO (the breeder)+ Marsha= KARMA

Thanks for the compliment on the list I have 1/3 of an acre, and 47 Earthboxes, plus some 7 gallon pots will do the job. I am planting out this week.

If I get it right, 101 plants. That is more than twice of what I do, Marsha.
A lot of work.

This time every year, yada yada, "lets just grow our favorite
baker's dozen next year". That should simplify labeling and
seed starting....until the new year rolls around and I sneak a
few more....a few more 4-5 bakers.
