- I'm saving 3 kinds of tomato seeds for the Populuxe seed bank- Bramki (a paste? hard to find info), Ferris Wheel (slicers) and Blondkopfchen (a golden cherry)
- I'm growing chard with One Seed Chicago
- I'm growing German Pink tomatoes for the One Heirloom Project
The Ferris Wheels have tons of flowers, although the earliest sets all seem to have dropped. Another very sturdy plant, although in general all the tomatoes are really muscular this year. No fruits yet. The Blondkopfchen, from non-SeedBank seeds, appears to be a wildly prolific cherry. Mine is blooming like crazy, but there's also one at the Peterson Garden that we think has about 300 flowers on it.
One Seed Chicago chard washed away in the April Sintflut.
German Pink for One Heirloom Chicago is setting flowers, although still small (latest transplant of all the tomatoes).
I like growing tomatoes, but I wish these community growing projects had a little more community this year.
