    Yup, we are harvesting all three this week. However we don't grow red (strawberry?) popcorn

    generic common names left to right tomato, corn, bean me thinks. The one on the left , tomato may be a related fruit (vegetable) seed as the pubescence is more than I have noted on the tomatoes I am familiar with. Sorry I'm not up to the complication or time of making an entry demanded by the competition rules. Hope you have lots of entries. Thanks

    I'm never going to have time to take pics and enter, but ID for those seeds is pretty easy. First one, tomato. Second is corn, looks very much like red popcorn. Third one shows black beans.

    The first one, I think, is a tomate seeds, the second one is a corn seeds and the third one is a bean seeds. Should I give you the variety to? Because this I cannot tell.
    Thank you
