This is my valentine card that began as a rutgers tomato several years ago...it sat around too long to eat... we had to show everyone and take pictures so it finally ended up in the compost.

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody!

Hi, Leila and thanks I haven't started any tomatoes yet, this will be the first year in a long time, but I'm going to try to direct seed them this year. I don't think I've tried 'bull's heart' .

yeah i wasnt able to grow tomatoes out on the coast for years, except a few in pots inside, so last year i went way overboard with them! trying not to start too many, but those were favorites.
the plants didnt produce that much and they took a long time to ripen, but they made up for it in beauty and taste, as well as HUGE SIZE. i'd send you some seeds if you want....

I am tempted to say yes...can I send you something? Since our place is for sale we aren't sure what we are doing for the growing season, but the little place we have looked at most recently is in a creek bottom and has soil and no rocks........they say it is the best garden spot around and I would love to get my hands on it. The house is sweet also...old enough that there isn't any really crappy stuff in the build...I would love to spend the next 20 -30 years growing food where it is not such a struggle.....so yes, I would love a very few seeds to try...I've planted as late as the first of July here and had wonderful tomatoes into the fall.

hey that all sounds great. of course it will all work out SOMEHOW, even if its not as you imagine.
the seeds are fresh from last year, they would store up for year or two.

so sure, lets do it. if you want to trade thats great too, but i would be willing to just send you some in a regular envelope too....whatevers clever.

i have done a ton of seed trading and saving so i am totally swimming in seeds. i have piles of want to plant immediately and runner up piles, and then other piles i hope to get to before spring....and then boxes and boxes full. still theres some things i am always on the lookout for, medicinal herbs, berries, fruit, tea herbs, unusual stuff.

Soon I'll be getting out my seed drawer of jars and see what I've got for our plant and seed exchange here......like you, I know I have way more than I could plant in a lifetime.......I'll let you know... Just a few in an envelope would be plenty. Thanks ...and I love the song you just posted in the music forum.
