Shared Seeds

January 20, 2010

Kirk brought the mail in on Saturday. I asked if there was anything interesting. He replied there was nothing interesting, except a letter for me from some strange man. I suppose turnabout really is fair play. Through the years, he’s received Christmas cards and postcards from strange girls. I’ve always joked about making sure they know he’s taken. It must have been nice for him to take a turn, all in fun of course. I’m not sure what was more interesting, the seeds I knew were hiding in the envelope, or the Yoda stamps. Both were pretty cool.

These are tomato seeds from Joseph at Greensparrow Gardens. They are the F2 generation, or grandchildren, of Matt’s Wild Cherry and Black Krim tomatoes. I’ll be growing some of these, along with my own saved Brandywine Pink seeds, and some paste tomatoes. I’m still trying to decide whether to try Speckled Roman or San Marzano. At the end of the season, I’ll send Joseph some seeds from my favorites of his hybrids. I wonder if I need to worry about them crossing with the others.

    Glad you like the yoda stamps… And glad the seeds arrived okay! You probably don’t need to worry about the tomatoes crossing with your other varieties — cultivated tomatoes usually self-pollinate, though every once in a while a bee will mix things up a little — which I think is part of the fun!
