What could be more beautiful and tasty than these historically older varieties of tomatoes?  This year's crop represents tomatoes from all over the world!  Naturally true to their original strain. these tomatoes have the most unique colors, and combinations of colors, shapes, and flavors!  Picture a platter of sliced heirlooms, sprinkled with fresh basil from your garden and splashed with some good olive oil. . .




Scrumptous sample of last year's harvest

 

 

Plus, for added interest, we grow some of our favorite "can't live without" and classic varieties as well!  There are  always more varieties than we've listed - and more than you'll have space for!!!  We have other vegetable and herb plants for sale as well.  All of our plants are started from organic seed by me in our greenhouses, and are gently hand-tended and raised organically until you take them home.

This year, time just flew by and things got away from me. We neglected to get copyright permission to use pictures from the companies to post on my web site. So, this year’s varieties will include a description of the tomato alongside its name instead. You can google the picture yourself. Many apologies, but we hope you enjoy 2016’s heirloom crop.
