TomatoGirl, the seeds germinated really nicely, but I managed to ruin the plants with bad soil in the containers. It was like swamp mud. Combine that with the miserable cold and rainy spring we had, and I was lucky to get a few tomatoes. I did get enough to save seeds, though. I can't wait to try again next year.
I'd love to do this again over the winter.
Maybe we can update later on and have another exchange.
