Ella, I was going to say the same thing regarding Joseph's tomatoes. When you pot up, Joseph, bury the stems almost to the leaves and the plants will make roots all along that stem. It also serves the purpose to make the top part of the plant shorter and buys you more time until you can plant out.
Grazie a tutti,
Julianna

Thanks for suggestions.

Jagodka are the shortest season tomato that I have ever grown, and highly determinate. I suspect that they will have fruited and died before 100 days. So I'm scrounging for gallon sized pots. At least the vines are short. They grew to about 18" long last summer in the garden. I think that will be manageable inside.

Oh yeah, Jagodka is a nice short & tidy plant. It should do just fine.
Grazie a tutti,

Oh, I have not tried those. I think I'll have to get some seeds for next year. They look like a nice tomato.

I added Jagodka to my 2014 oinking wishlist. Oh, dear, I really need professional help with my seed addiction. We could try group therapy, but I suspect it would turn into a seed swap.

A friend was commenting on the cut up empty soda bottles for my wintersowing. I said that it could be worse, I could be generating empty vodka bottles. Some of us buy a lot of those little zippie bags, very suspicious, must be addicts or "cooking" a la Breaking Bad......

I've got lots of Jagodka. Val McMurray of BC sent them to me years ago and it was one of the first of her varieties that I grew out. I saved a bunch and have since grown it and shared with many people. She's tending God's garden now, but I'm sure she's smiling down at all of us growing her seeds.

Do remind me for the next swap that you want those.
Grazie a tutti,
Julianna

I will try to remember to remind you. Not like I don't already have a shoe box full of JUST TOMATO seeds already! I try about 10 new varieties each year. But my list of keepers is getting pretty long!

My Jagodka seed came from Val's surviving husband Dan. Before this year my previous best performing tomato also came from Dan. May they RIP.

Seeds are less expensive than therapy, anyway, Ella.

We got 20" of snow yesterday with 4" more expected tomorrow. For a while last night snow was falling at a rate of 4" per hour. Quite the storm. I am thankful that it was snow, not ice.

I am sore from shoveling snow yesterday, but have a bit more to clear. Someone else plows the driveways, I just clear the entryway and deck. That is more than enough for me!

Ella would it be too much trouble for you to set up a spot for us t list wishes ahead of the swap so we can set any aside if we have them?

Nope, I can go ahead and give me a bit, make the 2014 Piggy Swap Database. That way folks can add things as they find them. Plus it would let other piggies know what to keep their eyes open for during the course of the year.

Ok, I'll get on it. Baking breads so will do it in between batches.

Yep, especially if there was a seed you wanted that you got oinked out, you can add it, so maybe whoever growing it can save some for you all for next year.

After all this mess and all this delay, ya all sure ya want a 2014 piggy swap? Confused

Of course we do Ella. You know how it is with us gardeners just cause this year wasn't the greatest doesn't mean next year won't be. Besides how else are we going to find out about all those new seeds someone has?

True...

Ok, you asked for it, here it is the 2014 Piggy Swap Database is now up and open for your pleasure.

http://cubits.org/ellasgarden/db/2014piggyseedswap/

I have the Piggy Hog Wash Bathtub up for logo for now til we decide on the permanent one for later this year.

What nice is as we see folks post seed too or pics or other stuff we find along the way, we can add to our wish lists.

Enjoy folks. Thumbs up

To answer your query, I've already added my name to the 2014 database! Hilarious!
A year with no Piggy Swap, perish the thought! However, it might be good to start & end the swap a couple of weeks earlier so the end doesn't coincide with the Christmas rush.

Thanks Ella! ^_^
