    Diane, what MFs do you have currently? I only have Reverend Michael Keyes - but am eyeballing several others.

    None of those are ones I have here. Most have handled our cool nights (normally in the mid 50s) without much problem but we have also had some bad heat here during the day... so not a typical growing season.
    Outside I have:
    Baby
    Hahms Gelbe
    Yellow Canary
    Rosy Finch
    Aztek
    Monteka
    Pygmy
    Bonsai

    Hahm's Gelbe has not done well for me but I think much of its problems are from my inexperience as it was one of my first one to start and plant outside. I managed to fry the majority of the seedlings and then the two I kept alive wound up not thriving in the their original pots. I moved them to pots with a different soil mix and they have slowly recovered and are catching up with my others. Good luck with your experiments

    No, not yet. I need to see how the little ones do - about half are ones I've never grown before. A number are from Casey's tomatoes in Alberta, Canada. It's a lot warmer in summer over on the Eastern side of the Rockies, so they may not do well for me out here near the ocean.

    Do you have certain varieties selected for certain crosses?

    Back to the beginning

    I've been growing a lot of Dan's crosses he made with Chris' Red Robin X (maybe) Rose Quartz Multiflora F4.

    I've got seeds of mini plants besides Red Robin, and a number of multifloras besides Rose Quartz Multiflora.

    So, I've just sown the mini group, and will take cuttings from the multifloras that are currently fruiting outside, and grow them inside the greenhouse.

    I haven't made any tomato crosses before (rhododendrons and squash have the size of flowers I prefer), but I will try.

    The small ones:
    Andrina
    Ditmarsher
    Edelrot
    German Dwarf
    Latah
    Minibel
    Mohamed
    Red Robin
    Rejina
    Rejina Yellow
    Tiny Tiger
    Tiny Tim
    Totem
    Venus
    Yaponskiy Karlik (Japanese Dwarf)
    Yellow Pygmy
Working...
