    I have four varieties and that's only because I'm trialing three.

    Tropic
    Neptune
    Homestead 24
    Roma

    Next year I've got two more to trial then I'll settle down to likely only two.

    Offhand I can't remember what varieties we have started but there is one flat each (72 plants) of plum, cherry, and brandywines. We usually plant out about 200 tomato plants and the same in peppers.

    Last year we did 7 different varieties, 4 didn't do to well here. I think we'll do about the same this year. Just not the same 7.

    I just planted 3 types yesterday--Roma, Tiny Tim and Brandywine.
    I've got 7 more varieties coming--Super Marmande, Hawkins, Rio-Grande, Yellow Pear, Cherokee Purple, Juane Flambe, and Green Zebra.
    I'm going to have 1-4 plants of each variety this year.

    I've started plants of:
    Cherokee Purple
    Mortgage Lifter
    Amish Paste
    Old Brooks
    Arkansas Traveller

    At least a dozen plants of each.

    I have seeds saved from other years for Brandywine, Oxheart, Caspian Pink and Scotia. But I still have lots of tomatoes left from last year in the freezer, so thought I should cut back.

    Ok, so far you all are making me look like a crazy person :eek:

    I have 22 diffrent kinds :bouncy: :eek:

    I have around 180 plants started. Not all these will survive my greenhouse skills (or lack there of) :grit:

    Surely some one else out there as around this many and just is afraid to admit it? :eek:

    I have two started, one determinate one indeterminate, and I plan on buying at least 2 plants from the nursery of a different kind. So in total I hope to have 3 varieties going. Total plants at this time 10 + 2 hopefuls for a total of 12.

    You don't look like a crazy person, cwgrl23. You just look like a person lucky enough to have a lot of garden space (and a greenhouse!?).

    10 plants started of each: sweet 100 (the best cherry there is), celebrity and early girl. We shy away from anything taking longer to ripen b/c we are always threatened by frost in early sept.

    I have no idea how many I have started - well over 200 plants, but I sell the extra seedlings. What will go in the ground here is:

    75 Roma plants (for sauce)
    5 slicing
    10 can't think of what the name is - for drying
    2 cherry
    2 grape
    2 yellow

    I've never heard of Amish paste.......details please? how do they compare to the Romas for making sauces/paste, etc?

    27 varieties here, and 33 of each type flatted up and doing nicely :eek: . I plan to sell around 350 and keep the rest for us.
