If you are looking for the full flavored tomatoes Gran used to grow, Heirlooms are the answer! Heritage tomatoes are incredibly flavorful and come in a wide array of colors, shapes, and sizes. I am growing more than 40 varieties of heirloom tomatoes for the plant sale this year. In addition to big red slicers, oxhearts, paste tomatoes, and sweet orange/yellow tomatoes, I offer many rare and unusual varieties that you can't find anywhere else.
I will also have other miscellaneous plants including: Peppers, Eggplant, Ground Cherries, Cucumbers, Mellons, Tomatillos, Chives, Peanuts, Basil etc.
The 2016 Heirloom Plant Sale will run May 10th to June 15th-ish. Heritage tomato varieties and Ground Cherries are priced at $5.00/Pack of 3 plants. other veggies are priced lower. Herbs are mostly $3.00/pot.
Its not easy to choose which varieties to offer, I have grown out nearly 500 varieties of tomatoes over the years. I only select tomatoes that have done well in several seasons of varied weather. I choose the varieties for the sale based on Flavor, Hardiness and Production; Only the toughest, and most delicious varieties make the cut!
My plants are raised in cold frames, never knowing the pampered life inside a greenhouse. They've known the hard knock life from day one and are fully hardened off and ready to be planted in the ground when you buy them! My Plants are all Non-GMO, and always raised without herbicides, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizer. I feed them with sea kelp and that's all folks.
The plants have been inoculated with natural mycorhize, which are symbiotic fungi that live with the roots and help plants uptake nutrients from the soil and fight disease.
I am growing a small number of many additional varieties of tomatoes and may have a few extra seedlings of each. If you are looking for a variety not on the list, be sure to ask.
