Tomato Seed Selection 2017

And now the pain begins I need to select 28 out of 75 varieties that I have in my seed boxes to grow in 2017. How do I get to the magical number of 28, there will be 22 flower buckets worth in the back garden, there will be three for the Grapevine and other seed circles that will be isolated in the greenhouses on the Allotments and the Space Saver Greenhouse at home, and two varieties grown in the ground on the two allotment plots and one variety at my eldest daughters.  

I'm not counting any space from the Mill Green Grow House and the Extension to the Little Shed on Mill Green Allotment in the equation at the moment which could hold another 12 varieties, giving me a maximum of 40 plants
