RE: dreaming of tomatoes/now Seed Savers


They are incredible. I belong to their Flower and Herb Exchange too.
Amazing variety. If I had ten acres I couldn't grow all the things I
like from their catalog. And I only grow their peppers now, they are
totally superior and produce consistently even in July and August. If
their tomatoes are half as good - they must be awesome indeed. I don't
grow tomatoes anymore - they give me terrible heartburn. Pity.
