I did some toms from seed for the first time this year and was delighted with how easy it was Dove.
Doh, silly me - should have edited that quote - I was talking about growing Cosmos from seed, not tomatoes - I grew hundreds of tomatoes from seed this year - well, scores anyway.
I grew lots and lots of heirloom varieties - including Golden Queen, Marianna's Peace, Soldacki, Jaune Flamme and Anna Russian - we've had the best year ever for tomatoes Fantastic crop - I'm roasting loads in the oven just now, and there may well be some tomato soup happening shortly.
Of all the varieties we grew this year the absolute favourite is Anna Russian, an amazing Pink Ox heart variety, solid fleshed and with a lovely sweet flavour and beautiful to look at. My Russian daughter-in-law was ecstatic when I took her a bowlful - my son was forbidden to use them for any recipes, DIL just ate them as they were and smiled beatifically
Hopefully I'll have some AR seeds again next year
