Last year I did something I’ve never done before. I saved seeds from one of my tomatoes. But I can’t remember which tomato I saved from.
As I recall, last summer was total doodoo for tomato growing. I had four plants but only one did much, probably an early girl or stupice. I’m guessing that’s the one. But I had a Roma, too, and I like to make sauce from those. The heirloom tomatoes look pretty and taste good but I’ve never had one that produced more than a few lumpy tomatoes.
I thought I’d throw them in some potting soil and see what happened and look. Lots of sproutage. I hate thinning sprouts (poor little seedlings, just want a chance) but I don’t see how it’s going to work otherwise. Plus, I don’t need 20 of the same plant. I don’t even need 3 of the same plant but I’ve got them now.
