We also have a Tomato medley packet from Sustainable Mountain....a fun gift they sent with our last order.
I take photos to document the tomato crop...with my photo editing program [GIMP] I add text and brief notes to each variety.
***Here is part of a page from the Seed inventory information Sheets Ralph's makes on the computer.
1. Claude Brown's Yellow Giant
Claude Brown’s Yellow Giant
Seeds of this tomato came from Claude Brown of Pike County, KY some 25 years ago. He had worked on improving his tomato for decades. This deep yellow tomato has an excellent flavor and can weigh three or more pounds.$4.00
2. Kellogg's Breakfast
Kellogg's Breakfast: mid, Ind, RL, high yield of about 1 pound beefsteak fruits, outstanding taste, juicy, originally introduced by Darrel Kellogg of MI. OG Pkt. $2.50
3. Dr. Wyche's Yellow
Dr. Wyche's Yellow: mid, Ind, RL, good yield of about 1 pound fruits that are gold at maturity, sparse foliage, some green shoulders, nice balanced taste. Dr. Wyche was of Cherokee heritage and made available many Cherokee varieties of vegetables to SSE; he also lived near a zoo and used zoo doo for his lush gardens. Pkt. $2.75 OG
Transparent: mid, oblate similar to Lutescent in strangeness as the fruits are a clear color, very blight tolerant, golf ball size, mild and juicy, strange feel to fruit, reminds one of "gummy bears". Pkt. $2.75 OG
5. Lillian's Yellow Heirloom
Lillian's Yellow Heirloom: mid, Ind, PL, moderate yield of about 1 pound clear yellow colored beefsteaks at maturity, great rich taste, creamy flesh, tender skin, very few seeds, the variety originated with Lillian Bruce of TN. Pkt. $2.50 OG
He adds further information to each variety as we grow them, notes about flavor, germination, pest resistance and the like.
***The "Bank" is in the deep freeze in black containers we found at Target and Staples, file folder bins with good seals and a nice flat shape to store and be unobtrusive in our deep freeze.
The only clear bin..mixed pepper seeds. The nice little tubs 35 mm film used to come in are great for seed storage.
Here is a black bin...The initial label is basic...This bin has herb seed, tomato seed and medley packs in it.
When it is raining or we are just in the mood for seed searching we exlore the seed site for new varieties or simply discuss the results we have had with our current chouces. It is always a learning experience and I have to admit we enjoy "banking" at our Tomato Savings and Loam.
Are you working on your seed bank? You most certainly should be. Good Luck and happy researching!
God Bless you all
