Seed offer, Edit: added item plus germination data
I've been at the subsistence farming/gardening activity for a long time. Along the way I have tried many varieties of commonly grown vegetables. I favor wherever possible productive varieties that are not hybrid from which I can successfully save seed. I currently have a surplus of a few of my favorite items that I wish to share with those interested. They are the following.
Little Mama tomato. These are a Roma style tomato with good flavor and have the highest ratio of meat to pulp of any tomato I have grown. These are highly productive and appear resistant to many of the usual tomato afflictions. It is an indeterminate variety and under favorable conditions can attain at height of 7 feet if adequately supported.
Lemon cucumber. These are a highly productive variety with round fruit 2-2 1/2" diameter. Does not trellis well and will sprawl on the ground no matter how hard you try to make it climb.
Dwarf Blue Scotch kale. My favorite kale. Developed in Virginia in the 1940's. As far as I know, no Scottish dwarfs were harmed in the process.
Added: Clemson spineless okra. Regarded as the standard against which all others are judged. Very productive.
Added: Germination test data
Little Mama tomato: 20/20 = 100%
Lemon cucumber: 7/20 = 35%
DBS Kale: 9/10 = 90%
Clemson spineless okra: 7/10 = 70%
If you are interested send a request with contact info including mailing address to David whose email can be found on these pages with subject line "Seed request, Tatorman" and David can forward to me as he has my email addy.
