Heh, DoS, we share a lot of interests!

Yep, ss, sungold is awesome... there is another sun cherry variety that I like even more but I can't think of it. My full sized favorites are mortgage lifter, early girl, Aunt Rubys German Green (which I can never find anymore) and brandwine!

Theo, i've seen that winter sowing site before, they have great ideas!

Woot for the mighty tomato! :headbang:

Those are some pretty ones Bobcat! And excellent link DOS, good seed source!

I have a farm pal that grows tomatoes almost year round in the PNW. He built a big wood fired boiler, ran pipes under the ground to heat the soil, and put a 100 foot greenhouse over the whole setup. He produces good organic tomatoes from about late March until about early December.

I'm stuck with gardening in the shade this year. It totally sucks. Yet I can't, I just CANT, not have some kind of garden. Probably tubs again.

Oh well, a few tomatoes and peppers are better than NO tomatoes and peppers!

If y'all love the taste of tomatoes I suggest trying a black tomato. The flavor is amazing :)

My favorite so far are Cherokee Purple although I will try some new (to me) variates this year.

I also really dig sungold too. They're a sweet, orange cherry tomato. Sidestreet knows what up :D

For a regular slicing tomato, celebrity and supersteak are good producers with nice flavor.

I do love heirloom tomatoes. Growing up I was only exposed to 'normal' red tomatoes and red cherry tomatoes, all of which totally grossed me out, for some reason. Later on in life, I moved to an area with a great appreciation of small, local farms, and of heirloom vegetables. The amazing rainbow of colors available in many, formerly familiar, vegetables continues to dazzle me. Prior to moving here I didn't even know what Rainbow Swiss Chard or Kale was, and had never seen a purple carrot. Purple Garlic even!

I was just looking at my small balcony garden and thinking it was time to get back to work...
