    As the title suggests I will send you a free packet of heirloom beefsteak tomatoes if you PM me your address (yes, I'll put them in an envelope and mail them to you, no strings attached.) or you can PM me and I'll send you my address where you can send a SASE. This is limited to about 100 of you since I am also offering these seeds to the local community garden that I participate in. I will not sell or save your contact info, and will cover all the costs of shipping; a stamp, an envelope, a zip-lok baggie and printed instructions. There are no better deals than this.

    These are the best tomatoes I've ever planted, they are delicious, plump (up to 2 lbs) and really prolific ( you MUST support the goring vines) and will not disappoint.

    Here's the details: I ordered a 1/4 gram of seed from my favorite supplier and they sent me a 1/4 POUND of product! So I'm sitting here with about 200X seeds I could ever use. I've split the package up to packets sufficient to plant 2 100" rows of tomatoes (2' spacing), and the packet I tested actually had about 170 seeds in the packet so you might be able to get 3 rows of plants. This would yield about 100 pounds per 100' row, the seed company only claims 75 lbs per row, but my experience is about 10 pounds per plant! I told the seed company I'd give them away when they said I could just keep them. Sustainable Seed Co. Here's a link to the product.

    Ok, here's photos of the seeds and supporting info.

    I'll include planting instructions in the envelope so you don't need to print the instructions from my photos.

    I knew there would be reticent members, send me a SASE and I'll send you a packet without memorizing your address. PM me and I'll send my address. :delivery:

    If you actually knew my history with the Feds, you'd never accuse me of something this ridiculous.

    I'll put the peoples seeds I have addresses for in the mail tonight, should go out tomorrow with my local mail carrier.

    There should be enough seed to net at least 200 lbs of red globes. I'll include a copy of the seed packet, and if you want the seed packet images to share your seeds with other you can get it from my media gallery. I'll upload a good scan of the packet this afternoon.

    I still have 100's of little packets of seeds. And the offer is the same, I'll send you a pack just for the asking! Normally these are a $2 for a pack of 20 seeds.

    Lump,

    In case you did not see it, I DID GET MY SEEDS.

    These are great! Unfortunately, I can't plant them this year as we are packing our house and are about to move back to Colorado. FINALLY.

    But I'm hoping for a greenhouse so I can start seeds like these anytime. I may even do an indoor garden for tomatoes and onions and peppers.

    It may be very beneficial in the long run.

    Especially given Colorado's growing season is very short - June thru end of Sept, sometimes into October.

    Wall, there's a girl on Youtube, Survival HT, did some interesting videos on straw bale farming. Worth the time to watch. Might help stretch your growing season a bit.
