I have dried out two batches of tomato seeds and I am fermenting a third batch. After all 3 are ready, I will make sure they are viable by sprouting a sampling in a wet paper towel. Then it will be time to pack them up and ship them out!
Sorry I haven’t had much to say lately, but life happens from time to time.
WOW! I have never grown such big fruits from this variety before! If you just joined this web site, let me fill you in. I have been saving seeds from “Cabin” tomatoes and regrowing them for the last few years. The plants seem really disease resistant, and I love the taste!
I have saved one batch of seeds, which was about the amount that covered a small dinner plate. Those are in the freezer now, and will be tested for viability soon.
I have a second batch of seeds fermenting in a quart jar right now, and that should provide another few hundred seeds.
I plan to send out up to 50 (give or take) envelopes of seeds for this variety of tomato to folks willing to send in a picture of their efforts to grow it in 2013, and who will try to save seeds for the next season.
Some have already sent me their addresses (thank you!), and I hope to collect a few more.
I have been seeing some Cabin tomatoes that are much larger than the last 3 years. I guess when they get full sun they produce at a better size!
I saved seeds from these two tomatoes. They are fermenting in this jar on my counter. Soon I’ll clean them and dry them.
Only 4 of the 8 people who said that they wanted to grow Cabin tomatoes next year have sent me their mailing address. If you are interesting in growing Cabin and you didn’t reply to my e-mail last week, please comment here.
