Tomato and Pepper Varieties 2016

An assortment of last year's varieties (Dester & Latah not pictured)

I'm growing more varieties of tomatoes than I did last year as if 15 wasn't enough. I've got 22 varieties started. I'll just be putting one plant of each in the garden but have started 3 of each and will be selling off the extras. Last year I only did 3 varieties of peppers but am stepping it up this year and doing 11. Almost all of my tomatoes and peppers were received through seed exchanges or saving seeds. All are heirloom varieties unless otherwise noted.

EDIT: I couldn't resist some new seeds I got so I added a few more so I'm up to 22. I'll have to plant a couple in the front yard to make room for them all! One of the new additions is Indigo Cherry Drop which I have been lusting after at The Herbfarm garden since last year but hadn't been able to find it anywhere but managed to get a few seeds from The Herbfarm Gardener so they'll be in my garden this year.

*This seed is from Germany and supposedly dehybridized and probably not sold in the US. 
**These seeds came from a seed exchange and labeled orange pepper and red pepper. So I'm not sure what exactly they are. Could be bell peppers or sweet peppers I really don't know but I wanted to find out.
