Sunny greetings from Germany

Hi :)
My name is Ina & I'm happy, that I found this forum.

I'm living kind of off-grid, on a beautiful piece of land, pretty much in the middle of Germany, where my partner and I live pretty self-sufficient with big gardens, lots of trees, our chucks, cat & all the wild animals.

My passion & knowledge about gardening is growing each year.
I love tomatoes, all the different tastes, colors and shapes.
Last winter I joined a german tomato forum and learned a lot about new varieties.

This season I'm having 50 plants, with around 20+ new varieties, also my first Dwarf & Multiflora.

I want to cross a few tomatoes and also sweet peppers for the first time.

I'm glad, that I can also practise my english here, if I make a mistake, please tell me, so I can learn.

Looking forward to talk to nice people here, exchange our experiences and learn more about this beautiful fruit :)

Sunny greetings

@Tomatina hi ina,

A big welcome to you from the uk!

Sounds like you'll fit in just right here too.

Your English is looking good, if I make a mistake don't forget to tell me either so I can learn :lol:
