Hello tomato folks,

We've just moved from San Francisco to Wappingers Falls, New York.  I'm
more than a little confused by all this winter, and I'm wondering if anyone
has suggestions on varieties to plant in this area.  It's mid Hudson
Valley, and relatively close to the river (5 min drive).  Zone 6 I believe,
but not sure.

The yard is neither large nor sunny, but it's our first house. I'm looking
for a good tomato for stewing and freezing since food prices are outrageous
around here and I've yet to see any really good produce.  My garden will
have to get us through next winter or we'll go broke.  I'll probably be
growing at least five varieties of tomatoes, maybe 20+ plants or there

Thanks so much for any suggestions!

Regards, Laurie
Wappingers Falls, NY
