Tomatoes for 2010

Below is a list of my 2010 tomato planting list. I will be planting one of each with the exception of Cherokee Green. This tomato was so delicious last season that I just have to grow two. The only tomato that I really want to grow but didn't get seeds for is Virginia Sweets. That will have to be at the top of my wish list for 2011.
