Time to start thinking about interesting gardening projects for next season. How about coming up with your own custom tomato variety ?
Tomatoes are really good self pollinators, however special techniques are required if you want to try to cross different varieties to create a hybrid. Wouldn’t it be fun to come up with your own hybrid tomato ?…..if it works out you could name your own Tomato Variety, after yourself or maybe your Favorite Aunt !

At any rate, here is an excellent article on the subject !
