Okay, I checked and yes, I would appreciate maybe 6 seeds? Also if there are any I have you would like I can save seeds. Mine are close but I can bag the blossoms. Here's a list of the varieties I am growing:

Akers West Virginia
Brad's Black Heart
Dwarf Jade Beauty
JD's Special C-Tex (purple)
Limbaugh's Legacy (my persona favorite)
Dwarf Mr. Snow
Dwarf Rosella Purple
Stump of the World
Sungella
Thesolaniki
Russian 117
Wes
Zogola
Cherokee Purple
Cherokee Chocolate
Brandywine Yellow
Opalka

Just let me know if you're interested in trying any of these. I actuallly have a shoebox full of seeds. My son was into trading/getting seeds and acquired quite a few.

Never heard of Kellogg's Breakfast! If you get loads of seeds and need to get rid of some; I would volunteer to help you out.

I only have Brandywine growing.

Can do, and in your neck of the woods you have plenty of time to get a fall crop in.

By mid August our first run of tomatoes will be long finished and we'll be planting our second crop of the year. Smiling But there are downsides: we spend all of July and August in nearly 100 degree weather where little grows very well.

Indeed we do. We have more than enough time for two crops.

In fact, I just started seeds yesterday for our fall crop. I will transplant them in late August. We will harvest through November until the frosts come in mid December. Some years a surprise frost hits in early November and that's always disappointing.

I sure would LOVE having two seasons of tomatoes. I never seem to get tired of home grown tomatoes. I think your two crops of tomatoes is super awesome. Thumbs up

We certainly like it. And if we do indeed get into breeding tomatoes then we can run through 2 generations in a year instead of one. Thumbs up

Glad I stumbled on this thread, I'm trying the two-crop system with my tomatoes. The first bunch are 5+ feet tall and tomatoes starting to pink up,red is coming. (Or in the case of Mr Stripey red and yellow.)
Just started some tomato seedlings for my second crop: Sarkharnyi Zheltyl. Anyone ever heard of this? It's an Eastern European type of large yellow tomato. I've just started trying different kinds, for many years I just grew Parks Whopper but now I'm branching out. Will have to try Kellogg's Breakfast next.
Dave do you grow your second crop of tomatoes in the same dirt as the first?

I believe the spelling is Sakharnyi Zheltyi, it is a Russian heirloom. The name translates to Sugary Yellow or Sweet Yellow.

Tatiana's TOMATObase has information on it.

It's also present in our database at Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Sakharnyi Zheltyi')

I've never grown it or even heard of it! I hope you post pictures and a report of how you like it!

We almost never grow tomatoes back to back in the same spot. We grow other things in those spots (cowpeas, corn, squash and what-have-you). The soil borne disease lifecycle gets broken this way and we end up with healthy plants. Never had a soil borne disease yet (keeps fingers crossed).

I picked a tiny Sun Sugar yesterday. It is the first tomato of the year. It will be at least a month before large tomatoes here. We had Kellogg's Breakfast last year and loved it. This year I'm trying Gold Wellington which I tasted last year and like. The plant isn't growing very well though.

Lots of green tomatoes here also but the only things ripe were some Sungolds and Sugery cherries. We don't get ripe tomatoes as early as Dave does. But then he must plant lots earlier also.

We transplant our tomatoes into the ground around March 5th. Late frosts are handled by covering them with an overturned 1 gallon pot which is then covered with 12 inches of hay.

Dave, don't you need a lot of pots to use if getting a frost? You must grow a lot of tomato plants.
