Hi Pete,

>> I will be ordering some Heirloom tomato seeds, so that
they will be ready for transplanting this September.  I think I should do
that soon...don't you think?<<  It would be appreciated. <G> 

Some of Carolyn's omissions that might be good varieties for South Fla are,
"Homestead 24F", developed in South Dade County, "Super Sioux" which was
originally grown in the great plains, "Jeff Davis", named for guess who? 
Then there is "Porters Pride" from the now defunct Porter's Seed Company. 
"Creole" was devoloped for the bayou country and  "Peron" was pnce called
"Peron Sprayless" and its developer claimed it was so disease resistant
that it never needed spraying.  "Tropic" and "Mission Dyke" are also good
Southern types.  Remember, Carolyn Male gardens in Albany New York and her
results are what might be expected there in most cases.

Your statement about Carolyn not being opinionated is interesting.  I'll
relay it to her unless you object.

I have a buddy in Melbourne Australia where the heat often reaches 110.  He
swears by "Super Sioux."

Good gardening,
Chuck Wyatt
