    No. All the seeds will be sent out at the end of the year and the seeds are fresh from people's savings from 2013.

    DFB - two varieties, eg. Aramis, Caruso, Jumbo, Tiefenbacher
    Toms - four varietes, eg. Plum Lemon, Ottos Papa, Popocatepetl, Lukullus, Purple Ukraine or others
    maybe a pepper, and a pea or broad bean, too - depending on harvest
    What are/is DFB?

    It would be great to have some new seed savers in the circle.

    OOH now this I like, see, because some silly idiot - yes me - grew that Hungarian Black wotsit and couldn't save seed - so that's one I would like.

    chillies and sweet peppers do (I always grow one variety only because I'm too lazy to isolate )

    French beans are okay, but runner beans and broad beans need to be isolated, too! if you grow more than one variety

    oops, yes indeed, sorry!
    I thought DFB was a common abbreviation here as I read it on a number of seed packets I got from Grapes

    Those four I got from G.Bohl's private seed archive to save from and send back, but I won't harvest anything for the kitchen from them (apart from a little tryout portion ) and so should have enough to share.
