Tomato Varieties I'm Starting This Year

The varieties I'm selling will have a star next to them. All tomatoes listed are heirloom and open-pollinated (not hybrid). All started in Peaceful Valley's soiless started mix and transplanted in Peaceful Valley's *organic* potting soil. I'm only selling to Sacramento County folks and anyone who wants to drive to get plants. I can bring some with me to Smartsville area as well. Sorry for the inconvenience to anyone who wanted me to ship tomato seedlings. I don't have the resources at the moment to ship. Thanks for understanding.

Moving Back To The Farm

So I will be going back to my homesteading blog and posting there in the next month or so since I will be moving back to the farm. Will post again when I start posting there instead of here.


Tomato seedlings! Yippee! These came up after only 4 days! Oh my! Good golly germination batman! These two varieties are both new seeds sold this year. Super fresh seeds. These I am growing intensively like last year in soiless seed starter mix from Peaceful Valley. It works great! And since I'm going to use thier potting soil I should not have any of the problems I did last year with the bad soil I got. Where's the thumbs up smilie when you need it. LOL!
Luffah seedling. They grow so sssllllooooowwwlllllyyyy. This seedling has been up for a few weeks now. They take off near the end of summer and get huge, but this first stage takes forever.

Mexican Gherkins. I can already tell they are doing much better than last years seedlings. That bad soil really did a number on all my plants I transplanted last year. Whew! Hopefully these will be ready the end of April for planting.

Seedlings and Winter Sowing

Pineapple and Chocolate mint I seperated into several plants for sale.
Broccoli and Swiss Chard seedlings. Anyone need any?
All my winter sowing receptacles. ;-) Everything is sprouting and it is so exciting! It's just really hard to take pictures of seedlings in them. LOL! The seedlings I'm most excited about are the Goji Berry plants coming up and the first tomato seedlings, Peacevine tomatoes.
