Re: Raifu's 2020 tomato to-grow list

This post was updated on .
I just finished planting all the tomato seeds. I did it all at once (although it took many hours, and I took a couple breaks), and planted a lot more than I had initially planned. I mean, I believe I planted everything on my list (except for Paul Robeson, SunLemon F2, and SunOrange F2; I edited my list to reflect what I actually planted—so you won't see Paul Robeson and those others on it), and then some others besides, like Mr. Brown. I should get them all listed by transplant time. There are well over a hundred cells planted. The ones I did lots of were Marion, the tart PL Brandy Boy cross F3, Napoli, and I think that's it. I did two of a number of them, but with the exception of Marzano Fire and maybe about one other, I planted each cell from a different seed source (to hopefully get at least one true-to-type plant on these reportedly really good-tasting varieties, and for controversial varieties).

I also planted my peppers (about thirty cells), wonderberries (six cells from the three-fruit fuse fruit), Morelle De Balbis (2019), West India burr gherkins (5), red epazote, Stevia, safflower, tomatillos (two of Yolanda's Purple), and probably a number of other things.

I can determine some of the extra tomatoes I planted by looking at the ones with empty seed packets. Edit: I've already determined them all, but it's good to know which seeds I'm out of, still.

Here are the empty bags I have:
* Isis Candy (TomatoFest, packed for 2009; it only had two seeds; I mixed those with my other source in the same cell)
* Marion C, 2019
* Mr. Brown, standard (may incl. Prem, saved 2015)
* Chadwick Cherry, Premium, 1oz, saved 2015
* Pierce's Pride, Sustainable Seed
* Wild Tiger
* `12 Sweet 'N' Bright AKA Hellfrucht; 2oz; disease resistant, coolbythecoast
* Tundra
* Polaris
* Neves Azorean Red, sdambr 2015
* Marzano Fire
* Malakhitovaya Shkatulka, Premium, 14oz, 2016, CJ
* Crimson Cushion, from eyegrotom of TV
* Box Car Willie, Premium, 12.5oz, saved 2015
* Blushing Bride
* Brown Berry cherry
* Marion, fruit #1, large, first, 2019
* Lucid Gem
