    Ailsa craig
    Ananas
    Tigerella
    Black cherry
    Ildi
    All run of the mill but next year some old varieties.
    May find some I'll be interested in to try.

    I think the others may be a bit run of the mill....

    Is this msg enough to get me in - or do I have to "sign up" somewhere?
    Only growing one of each variety (I don't have enough space for loads!) - but all have set fruit so I'm hoping I'll be able to rustle up enough seed for The Seed Circle.

    I've got :-
    Green Velvet
    Brad's Blackheart
    Piccolo (saved seed from Punnet of toms from Tesco)
    Sun gold
    Sweet aperitif
    Sunchola
    Mountain magic
    Black cherry
    Black Trifele
    The ones best suitable from these would be green velvet, brads black heart, or black trifele.

    This year's non F1 will be:

    Rosella
    Latah - a very early variety from Real Seeds. First year of trying.

    I’m very sorry that I unwittingly seem to have broken the rules.
    I’m quite happy to be left out of the tomato seed circle for this year and am still willing to donate my green velvet, black trifele and black cherry seed.
    Perhaps I could participate in the seed circle next year after proving myself?
    I retired last September and so have more time for growing vegetables.
    Prior to this we mainly only grew flowers in the garden. Once I started thinking about growing tomatoes, I wanted some good, tasty varieties and decided to revisit this forum.
    I only have 2 plants each of black trifele, black cherry and green velvet and they’ve done very well this year. I won’t be disappointed to “make do” with these for 2019 and will I look forward to some different ones for 2020.
    Sorry again.
    Don't panic. It is that age old thing of it only takes one to ruin it for everyone else, unfortunately there has been a lot more than one on here If you feel told off you must be genuine Anyhoo no need to opt out
    Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you...'Share'

    Thanks for your kind comment NorfolkGrey, I can see that I look like a “sponger”!
    Most of my interaction with the community is going to have to be flower related I’m afraid.
    The flowers get all the space, so other than a row of mixed climbing beans I’ve only got tomatoes in growbags, and a few incredibly pathetic peppers and chillies in pots.
    Oh yes - now that I’m retired with more time on my hands I’ve also got lots of herbs in pots - basil, lemon verbena, oregano, blackcurrant sage, pineapple sage, lemon balm, pineapple mint, garden mint, chives, rosemary and my all time favourite ginger rosemary.
