I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Pink Flamingo Tomato Seeds (78 days)

I believe the story or history of a seed like Pink Flamingo Tomato is important to share. I got this seed a few years ago from Lisa Von Saunder. She collects endangered seeds from Amish Pennsylvania German families in her area and tries to preserve them. Lisa also gets seeds from her friends in Russia and that is where Pink Flamingo came from. This tomato was handed down to the lady Lisa got the seed from, by her grandmother who still lives in the Ukraine.
Pink Flamingo is as pink as the bird feathers it was named after...well almost...as close as a tomato can get anyway! Pink Flamingo is a rich, meaty tomato that showed absolutely no cracking in our trial gardens. Its flavor is light, clean and the fruit size is about 8 oz. Plants are vigorous and produce excellent yields over an extended period. Great fresh eating tomato and would simmer down to a good sauce I think. This is a very rare tomato and only Lisa's seed company and us have it available this year.
California Grown Heirloom Seed This is another one of those Russian varieties that just performed excellent in our cool coastal Bay Area climate. Vines were vigorous and while we were not over-whelmed at any given time with fruit, Pink Flamingo did provide a steady stream over a long season.
