Baby Tomato is born and wants to say 'hello'!!
The first of my tomatoes have (been born) germinated and are thriving! Again, I get carried away and have ordered many, many different varieties of heirloom tomatoes! Old favourites like Green Zebra, Pink Brandywine, Black Krim, Striped/Old German and some new faces including: Lime Green Salad, Plum Lemon, Southern Lights, Black from Tula and many, many more. Let's not brag this year (perhaps keep it dryer out in the patch) but I am planting more than last year, just not going to start screaming amounts until they are in the ground!! Lots of organization to keep it all in check, but also a hell of a lot of fun too!! I will also be selling some plants this year. Tried and tested varieties great for patios or small garden spaces. Particularly our very popular Sweet Baby Girl the super, super sweet red cherry tomatoes, along with it's partner in crime: Sun Sugar, the super sweet yellow cherry tomatoes!! Plants will be sold well established for an affordable price with our own compost to aid in transplanting or simply maintaining in a potted environment!! Also look for early spring transplants we will also offer the markets including spring onions, lettuces & Asian Greens! I noticed no one offered these important plants early in the season, so I hope to fill a gap and create more of an income for start up costs on this very busy farm! Anyhow, all in due time, not until well into late April for anything of the sort.....
Just enjoy the nice warming baby tomato picture for now!!
