Tomato Grow List for 2018

There is a thread on the Grow Your Own Grapevine Forum asking what tomatoes grapes will be growing this year which got me thinking a little earlier than usual

I will be growing the usual 22 flower Buckets in the back garden and I want to grow my Crimson Crush 4th generation self saved seeds and Rapunzel on the allotment and lots of short bush varieties in the greenhouses assuming I manage to get the new plot ready and the third greenhouse (2nd Plot) erected in time.

I've catalogued all the tomato seeds in my Seed Box

Then I've sorted my Tomato seed collection by Growing Habit

In January 2017 when rain stopped play on the allotment, I created a three year plan for 2017 - 2019 that when out of the window when I accidently bought more tomato seeds in the Wyevale seed sale

So the final cut for 2018 will be determined this month on a day when rain stops play again, but what I have established so far is;

My Grow every year standards are

01 Beefsteak
02 Gardeners Delight
03 Crimson Crush F4
04 Kibitz
05 Money Maker
06 One Hundreds and Thousands
07 Outdoor Girl
08 Stupicke Poini Rane
09 Rapunzel

So that is 13 More varieties yet to be determined, this will be based on the age of the seed saved so that I may replenish the seed stocks and keep my collection viable.

The Greenhouse varieties will be

01 Bajaja
02 Balconi Red
03 Minibel
04 Red Robin
05 Rosella
06 Sub Artic Plenty
07 Super Roma
08 Tiny Tim

So (at the moment) there is a planned total of 30 different varieties to grown this year!
