Bicolour Tomatoes 2017

Again this year it is tomato varieties galore. While there still are lots of people that request a good red tomato, lots more people are venturing into some of the more interesting and colourful varieties.

With all the new breeding work being done with open pollinated varieties, there are some pretty incredible looking and tasting ones out there and they fall under my category "Bicolour".
The Bumblebee line, the Tigers and the Darby's include some very special ones indeed. These are the ones that you will find at my farm on "Tomato Days", being on May 20 at 8 am. Please note I have tried to plant loads of the ones that are the most popular, like Pineapple. I have tons. Figuratively. I hope it is enough. Some other varieties are more limited, but there are so many to choose from and you are going to get a great tomato. Additionally, there are some great bicolours on my preorder list on my website.

Here we go!

2017 Sweet/ Hot Peppers and Eggplants

May is just around the corner and of course that means my annual "Tomato Days" sale is as well.
This year the long weekend begins on May20th, and that is when I begin selling my reasonably large assortment of plants. And yes, I have been busy. There are thousands of plants.
I began in February seeding the peppers and eggplants, following up with weeks of seeding tomatoes and an assortment of other enticing items. I continue to seed and transplant, water and protect the seedlings from extremes of weather, both heat and cold. This time of year is generally a bit of both and the fluctuations can be drastic.

But the plants are looking good. So let me begin by outlining some of what you may find here when you come out to my small farm May 20th and on. Remember there are some things I have lots of, like my best selling varieties, others it may be far fewer plants of that type. And some things sell fast.

There will be lots available that I do not list on my blog. Oh yes, but here I go. Ground cherries, Cape Gooseberries, sweet potatoes, basils, parsley, kales, lettuces, chards, zucchini, squash, melons....lots more too!
