I'm interested in trying some micro varieties, to complement the dwarf varieties that I already grow.

Anybody Micro Tom?  Mohamed? Others?

 

If so, please share your thoughts, and possibly your seeds!

I ordered some dwarf species of tomatoes for next season. I'll have to look through my emails to find the source. This will be my first season growing them.

 

Here is where I ordered my seeds

I have been growing these out for a few years:

Huge tomatoes on very small plants.  Can be grown in 3 gallon pots.  However, I want to downsize the plant even more, while selecting varieties that yield big in limited spaces.

Yeah, that's a great seed source.  I ordered all of my dwarf seeds the first season that I grew them from the the dwarf tomato project.

 

I think you'll be pleased, especially if you're relegated to container growing.

I'm going to grow some in ground and in containers and see which way is best in my garden. I like having the option to move them from the 100* plus weather in containers.

I don't really have an in-ground option, but to be perfectly honest, with smaller plants, I feel like I have more efficient use of resources.  By that statement, I mean, that I always get bigger yields from containers, relative to the amount of work that I put into them.  That being said, I also don't have fertile soil.

I got over 30 lbs of tomatoes off of one tomato plant this year in a 5 gallon bucket.  It was a large variety that isn't even recommended for that size container.  I think it will be great to see someone do a side-by-side comparison of in-ground vs container grow on dwarf varieties.  Hopefully you'll glog that...

Tomatoville.  Yeah, it's a cult.  Not a great forum - especially when you don't agree with everyone else on every single issue.
