    I found them at the Yuppie Bastard nurseries here in Portland, and I don't remember what the names of the varieties were.
    I suspect that a properly worded Google search would turn up something, though.

    try the tomatoville forum. they're more than willing to trade or sell for varieties. and you're sure to find tomato maniacs out there as much as we are knife nuts.

    they have all kinds of seeds being traded around.... even give away seed for people to test.

    super rare heirlooms, climate specific ones, gmo free hybrids, recent discoveries, etc.!

    thems are good peoples

    I'm in central Texas, and most of my tomatoes are already in the ground. I've been eating lettuces and greens all winter, and fennel and beets for the past couple of weeks. Sugar snaps are a foot high, and just planted beans. Parsley, cilantro, rosemary, thyme, mint, tarragon, and oregano, too.

    This is what things will look like by early May:



    Of course, by August, things will be pretty bleak!

    We have a place up in Dutchess County, so the vegetable garden my wife tends is only active for the spring and summer. Her mainstay are tomatoes of various kinds, cucumbers (the best I've ever tasted) squash, zucchini, lettuce and herbs of all kinds. Deer are keep at bay with a perimeter 7' fence and the garden has its own 5' fence for the smaller critters. Her biggest chore is keeping it weeded.

    i'm surprised with the fact that it's taken two years to even bring this topic up even if this place is about knives and cooking. =D

    mkmk, that is a BEAUTIFUL garden!

    I need to grow garlic again. Tried it one year and was amazed by the difference in home grown--almost like an apple in texture, it was so crisp and juicy. And the flavor....
