I thought that I was familiar with tomato varieties, but there are many on here that I have never seen offered elsewhere.

My question is:
Do you grow all those varieties? How do you keep them all straight? I find with only a dozen seedlings of the same type, I end up.... all mixed together. I can separate the melons from the tomatoes... but how do you keep them straight? I am looking for trade secrets... tee hee.
Also, do you do anything special to keep the tomatoes from cross pollinating?

I have to apologize for my absence (sowin, trading..you know! :lol: ).

barnercora, those are all tomato varieties I grew last year (some are missing due to low quantities) - I actually grew about 300 varieties but I couldn't save all the seeds (lots of work and I was pretty fed up with seed saving).

Ozark Lady,
regular leaf tomato varieties usually don't cross. You just have to keep some distance between them and it'll be ok. I plant them about 70cm apart (2.27 feet) and it's always ok. I plant the potato leaf varieties in other parts of the garden (they are just a few varieties each year) so I keep them a little bit apart.

If you get an interesting mix just take some photos, save the seeds and try groing them next year - you may get a new variety!

I took popsicle sticks, and wrote the names of plants on them, then put them with the plant, within weeks, I could no longer read the sticks, so I had to depend on my lists, of where I put which, and that was not always kept up to date as well as I could hope. :oops:

When I had 10 types of tobacco, and they all looked similar... I had a few.. I had to just call... tobacco because I lost the tags. And I didn't save seeds from the mysteries.

I also lost the names of one bed of tomatoes last year... so it is big maters, and clump maters... I honestly have no idea what they were, but they grew well and tasted good, so I saved some seed, but didn't offer it for swaps.

How do you keep your plants so that you know, which is which?
My memory just can not be relied on to get the notes to my computer, much less remember later! I even have paper notes in the garden, lay them down and first thing you know, I threw it away, without recording it! :oops: Some days, I just seem so dingie!

Name tags. :D

You need to get reliable name tags. Store bought or home-made version (I put an add on a forum and a guy contacted me that his friend works with plastic and has a lot of leftover parts that would do the job - you can see them in the photo).
https://picasaweb.google.si/marjeta8/090617#

I must admit that I lost a few name tags (or covered them with the soil). It won't happen this year. I already made a list of the varieties I've sown - I'll organize them before planting (varieties per row- Row 1: Pineapple, Wapsipinicon peach etc. ; row 2: Black form tula, Black prince etc.). I did something like that last season (but only for about 70% of the crop) and it helped a lot.
It's much easier if you do this on your computer and then just print it.

Thanks for the tips. Some fantastic ideas!

I have labels on the inside seedlings, not a problem, but once I go to planting.... look out!

We must remember, I am going from hobbyist to actual gardener, so many things will simply have to change. With a hobby, if I lost a tag so what, I didn't save seeds anyhow... just enjoyed it for the season, and ordered more next year. Actually, last year was the first time that I even cared if I had tags or not.

I do know how to garden, but lots to learn with the volume increase, and with getting serious about seed saving.

Are your tags in the soil, or attached to the plant or the stake somehow?

I have grandchildren, who would definitely play with the tags, so I would need a safe way to permanently attach them to something or other...

My tags are in the soil, but you can also tie them on the plant if they have a hole (or you can make it by yourself). I guess the second option would be better for you if there's a danger of your grandchildren playing with them.

tomatogirl: I have a full clove worth (15-20 starts) of California White Garlic. I have 5 10 gallon+ pots full of garlic so far, so I don't think I need any more! lol. =) I'm a very avid vegetable gardener, so i'd love to trade for some of your tomato seeds. Let me know what you think would be a fair trade for the garlic, if you're interested.

I use cut up strips of reflective tape made for trucks/trailers to mark my plants. I have never had a problem with the sharpie washing off, but I do write on both sides of the tape just in case. On cage/trellis plants I just wrap the tape around and stick it to itself and on everything else I use a metal wire wrapped around some part of the plant. I tried sticks and PVC pipe in the past and that WOULD have worked if not for my stupid dog....
I can garauntee you'll never bury a plant marker again tho cuz on a sunny day they sometimes blind you!!!

You have lithuanian tomatoe- I am lithuanian, so I have to get it. I hope it is not large variety(meaning like beefstake, because my garden is 1 mile from the beach, and large ones don't get enough heat to ripen or take forever to ripen.

Lithuanian, ah? :D

Lithuanian crested pink is actually one of my favourite tomatoes. Let's say it's in the top 5.

I'll link you my source:

Check the tomatoes on my list if you find something that is good for your climate.

Wow! They are interesting, aren't they? Kind of large, but hey, I can wait untill they get ripe even in September. Tomatoegirl, you will make me to raise tomatoe number 5 in my small plot, and after overdoing it last year, I promised myself to reduce tomatoes. Maybe I will pull one out from the ones I already have. :shock:
