    Quote:The only heritage on your list I've ever grown before is the Cherokee Purple. Nice tomato but I did not find it very prolific. This year, I have:

    Mr. Stripey
    Black Krim
    Japanese Black
    Rutgers
    Jubilee
    Sweet Tangerine

    I'm also growing a couple of hybrids, Big Mama paste and Burpee's 4th of July. I usually pick up a few at the University of Arkansas Horticulture Club Plant Sale in Fayetteville in mid to late April. I'll be looking specifically for a Brandywine and a cherry, plus whatever else strikes my fancy that day. That's where I originally got the Sweet Tangerine and Japanese Black.

    To me, the Japanese Black is an extremely great tasting tomato but it would not work for a roadside stand. It is too soft.

    Thanks Har and Tala.
    I had thought about cedar chips but I was told it was a big No No. Traylor shavings is out on hwy 16 toward siloam. They supply commercial houses and I thought I'd see if they would sell just a pickup load at a time. Its more than I need but often its cheap enough to be worthwhile. plus maybe I can pile it up in a barn for future use. I'm south of fayetteville near the Oklahoma line

    Quote:I'm outside Prairie Grove, just a little to the east. How close are you?

    Cedar shavings can give off fumes that can hurt the chicks respiratory system. Building with cedar is fine. The shavings have so much surface area that they can give off a lot of fumes but cedar lumber does not have that much surface area.
