Any idea how these seeds compare to store bought?  I got some San Marzano plants from a local grocery store, and I'venoticed that the seeds are widely available.  The big box stores and local nurseries all have them on their rack.  I was going to order some, but it looks like I don't have to.

I'm not sure, I've grown store bought Roma but not San Marzano seed.

Beautiful selection. What are you planning for the tomatillos?

Thank you! 

My wife is the chef of the house...a real master with food, so I'm sure there is plenty of ideas for the tomatillos .The only thing I plan on doing with them is make salsa verde to add to the cream cheese base of the jalapeņo popper pizza.

I have all that already, thankfully.... I have a filter right after the pump, and a really nice timer I used for my soaker hoses.  I'm not sure if I'm going to go drip or spray. Any thoughts?
I use in line drip emitters- with pressure compensation, because my garden is on a slight slope. I try and keep all moisture off tomato, pepper, cucubrits ( cukes, squash) plants to avoid any fungal/bacterial diseases, so drip is best.  For other plants in cooler months ( spinach, lettuce, greens, roots crops I occasionally use a mini sprayer w/ valve to get them to germinate and establish, with drip lines for the rest of their growing length. I used to use soaker hoses, but they don't water evenly, especially on longer runs. They tend to deteriorate after a few years for me.

I'm drying seed now, they should be ready within the next week or so.  I think I have enough to mail out 3 or 4 envelopes with at least 24 seeds.  PM your address if you are interested, and I'll notify when they are sent out on this thread.

And please let me know if they germinate.  I plan on drying as much as I can so I should have plenty....I hope.

Finally got these plants off the ground.  Not worried about neat and pretty...it's scorching hot here.  What matters, is the 'maters.

And a note to those that pm'ed me.  I will get you the seeds, but I won't have enough ready on this first batch to get to all of you.  I'll send out the seeds in order of those that gave me addresses.  I don't think I'll have trouble getting any to all of you, I'll hopefully have fruit until November!

Norma, Karl, Craig and Chad,


I am mailing out your seeds on Monday..I'm leaving home early in the morning and it might rain, so I don't want wet envelopes for the mailman.  I put 30 seeds in each.  I know everyone has their own way to start seed, but I used peat pellets to start 54 plants and everyone germinated. 

Best to you growers of third gen heirloom SM's.   I'll have plenty more seed too.

Are your seeds determinates?  I like the PVC cages, clever.

I'd love seeds, but I'm moving next year and won't be growing anything. Hope you're still around in 2016  :D

Indeterminates.  Seeds don't go bad if they stay dry.... If you would like some, pm your address. I have another 30 ready to go.  I'm drying another batch too.

Sent you a PM.

They seem short for indeterminates, but I like that.

Thanks so much stonecutter,  Do you think they will grow enough this year from seed?  I kind of have my doubts about that in my area.

It might be too late for your area Norma, but why not start some anyway?  I'll have plenty of seed for spring...and you can start them in peat pellets and seed trays in time for an early spring planting.

SM are heirloom plants, most of those are indeterminates.
