Thank you Plot18 for the report.  That is good news.  I was very doubtful but started feeling hopeful when some of the rejects here started sprouting a few days ago.  Good to know the ones sent in the post are growing too.  :wave:

Gazzi Yellow Egg.  First ripe tomato this year.  Outdoors!  Although the greenhouse ones are not far behind.  Thankyou Markfield Rover.   :wave:

Stripes of Yore.  Wow!  They are not ripe yet, but I have 2 plants that at the moment have practically black fruits.  I guess they will end up like this:  http://tatermaterseeds.com/shop/index.php?main_page=popup_image&pID=14

and I have a green stripey plant, which I believe will end up like this:  http://www.tomatofifou.fr/recherche-variete-2/recherche-multicriteres/stripes-of-yore-1093-detail

Can't wait for these to ripen.  Thank you so much for the seeds.  :wave:

This report goes back to a seed portion a few year's ago.  The Minogue seeds.  I have grown plants from them and divided vegetatively.  This year I have a couple of flowers too.  Currently waiting for seeds which will take a few more weeks.  However two of the flowers are developing seeds as well as tiny top bulbils!  Like Babington's Leek.  They look just like Minogues, but I wonder whether I have a cross between the two (that would be very exciting) or whether it is just a way that Minogue Multiplier onion can also reproduce itself.  It could be a version of 'leek pips'.  The seed heads with the bulbils have far fewer developing seeds.  I wonder whether they will produce fertile seeds.  Whatever it is, it is rather fascinating!  :wave:

Peas Ave Juan.  Oh Wow.  Huge pods, huge seeds and up to ten per pod.  Thanks MR for lovely addition to the collection.  They also coped reasonably well with the heat, which was a problem for so many peas this year.  Thank you!  :sunny:

I'll post some photos later; only growing a reduced programme this year, so just a few from the seed circle.  Harvesting Dead Sea Man at the moment from a mid-April sowing!, which was one on my list for some time and I never got around to.  Got a stunning Flat White Boer (2016 circle I think) nearly half a metre in diametre and such a beautiful skin texture, like a beautiful hand-crafted item.  I won't be eating it, that's a decoration for the fireplace.  There's a smaller one I can sample.  So thank you for those.

Mainly I'm curious about peoples' experiences of the Petit Gris de Renee (Galina's).  I grew a couple last year from Realseeds and wanted to grow more this year.  I have two plants from Galina's seeds and two from Realseed's (and don't remember which are which  :tongue3:)

One of the plants is producing far larger melons; 6-7 inches in length, certainly not a single serving type like the original and yet the leaves are identical.  Have I got a hybrid?  Did anyone else?  Or, is it a Realseeds seed?  Be interesting to see if it tastes the same.
