I usually already have my order picked out by now, but I'm behind this year. Most of my seeds last year came from Seed Savers.
I had really great luck with my tomatoes. I had three different kinds last year. Italian Heirloom was by far my favorite. If you are looking for a good canning tomato, this is it. Most of the fruits were in the 1-1.5 pound range. I even had one that hit over 2 pounds. I took a picture of it on my phone last year, we'll see if I can get the picture off of it. Chalks Early Jewel was a good slicing tomato. It was perfect for putting on sandwiches and very prolific. My favorite novelty tomato this year was a Green Zebra. It was so much fun to watch them turn green with green stripes to yellow with green stripes. Although I have to say it was a little weird eating a green tomato.
Last year my tomatoes were out of control! My cages were not sturdy enough for them.

|And the out of control tomatoes begins...cucumber plant down there at the bottom|
|That is not one big tomato plant, but rather about 8-10 plants.|
