Met new grower Reed's Birds and Bees for lunch. Gave him some of Gary Vincent's AG seeds that he had given me. Gave him a marrow seed that I had been given by Glenomkins. Gave him some of my Mega mutt and Karkos Big Zac tomato seeds. Talked pumpkin for awhile.

Started tomato seed swap with Udo Karkos. Went to Post Office and sent him 5 different varieties of tomatoes. Hopefully I have filled out the customs form correctly. I'll be finding out in 7 -14 business days if he gets it.

Flat White Boer Pumpkin seeds I received from a coworker that loves to grow pumpkins. Yes they are blue. Non-GMO You can actually stack the pumpkins on top of each other. I give her big orange and other seeds. I've encouraged her to join SCGA but she hasn't.

2019 AG line up provided that my patch dries up like it usually does. It should be dried up by the middle of April if a normal moisture spring happens.

2019 AG Plan B if patch is not dry by end of May. Hopefully no more rain/snow. I'll grow nice looking pumpkins instead of going for size.

Beefsteak hybrids you can buy at the store/on the internet. I'll be trying to cross these seeds with the Big Marley. I'll also try to cross the 5.11 Karkos Delicious with the Porterhouse variety to create a Delicious Porterhouse tomato.
