Tomato Team Growing Competition

1 comment

For those that haven't seen it on the Big Pumpkins Tomato Growing thread there is a Team Growing Competition next year for tomatoes. Ontario has quite a few great tomato growers so I think we should all get on the list. Even if you aren't a good tomato grower they are organizing it so there are 3 levels A,B,C based on your PB. Each team will be randomly chosen with a grower from A,B, and C to form the team and the best 2 tomatoes from each grower will determine the total score. It looks like a great opportunity to learn from some top growers and create some friendly competition. Lets get some Ontario representation in this competition. Here's the link to sign up http://www.bigpumpkins.com/MsgBoard/ViewThread.asp?b=33&p=617395 there is also a few other posts on the tomato board about the competition. Sounds like fun!

    It is seed drying time of year. Keep your GVGO seed packs in mind. I am looking after sorting and sending out the packs this year. Lets all work together to make them great. Send in all kinds of seeds. Everyone is looking for different things in a seed pack. You must be a paid up member for 2020 to receive your seed pack.
