Wow how great are rams horn and pearly pink cherry, they both made my top 3 lists.  Keep an eye out for these varieties.  I really loved growing pineapple - what a surprise and so large at an average of 262 g with the largest being a whopping 432 g for the first tomato- pretty amazing considering it was grown in a 25 L grow bag.  I was a bit disappointed in money maker but I will surely give it a try in the garden and see if it works out, they usually do. 
It was a great year if you planted early enough the summer was long and hot and unfortunately the varieties i planted later in the season didn't make the grade, so I will have to make a do over for a few.
