Yesterday on GardenChat, we talked about growing tomatoes. (To see the recaps of the Monday night chats, review their archives.) Looking at photos and hearing recommendations from gardeners across the US, Canada, and even a few from the UK, I became ravenous, craving not only fresh tomatoes, but their seeds as well.
I’ve participated in seed swaps before but have never hosted one. I don’t know how chaotic it’s going to get. But I’m giving it a try.
Here’s what I’ve got that I can share:
- ‘Yellow Pear’
- ‘Principe Borghese’
- ‘Mortgage Lifter’
- ‘Sophie’s Choice’ (good for short seasons)
- Jalapeno (how do I put the tilde on top?
- ‘Corno di Toro-Rosso’ (I think)
Miscellaneous vegetables and herbs:
- Basil (Genovese)
- Bush bean ‘Contender’
- Broccoli ‘DiCicco’
- Broccoli raab
- Cucumber ‘Arkansas Pickling’
- Cotton (red-foliated)
- Ceratotheca triloba
If you want any of those, reply to this post and let me know what you’d like. If you have a blog of your own, link to a post showing what you have available to swap. I will leave it to individuals to work out mailing addresses and so forth.
By the way, I’m in search of almost any variety of sweet pepper, as well as tomatoes ‘Carbon,’ ‘Black Krim’ (can’t believe I’m out of those seeds!), ‘Black Cherry,’ ‘Paul Robeson,’ and ‘Amy’s Sugar Gem.’
Flower and herb seeds are welcome, too. Please try to make sure you’re sharing fresh, viable seed.
Let the swapping begin!
