I have been growing dwarf tomatoes from seed for 3 years, each year I save seeds from my plant to use next year. The first year the seedlings had low germination and got damage from too much water or light. This year I notice light is no issue and germination is nearly 100% and they grow the best than any other variety of tomato I buy.

Could they have adapted to my environment producing hardier offspring equipt to cope with issues first gen faced?

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
