My 2nd batch of tomato plants sold out this past Friday/Saturday with an
unexpected demand. I was visited by my many fans and friends (old & new)
and I greeted all with very loud purring when I received chin rubs and
petting. I like keeping in touch with my customers even though Im a
retired indoor kitty now.
This springs weather conditions have been a significant challenge both for
us as growers of heirloom tomato plants, as well as for our customers/fellow
gardeners. The weather has been non-cooperative too hot, too cold, too
windy, and no significant rainfall. Currently, we are 5 inches below
So I will be closed for about 2+ weeks, and will re-open on/about June 10
(if the weather cooperates) when I expect the 3rd and final batch of my
tomato plants will size up sufficiently for sale and subsequent planting.
IT WILL NOT BE TOO LATE FOR PLANTING TOMATOES. The ground will warm up
(>65° F 70° F) and the weather should be more conducive for planting. The
key is warm ground and night-time temperatures above 45° F 50° F (unless
the plants are covered).
I apologize for this interruption in the heirloom tomato plant sale and any
inconvenience it may cause you.
Thanks for your understanding and patience. Once again, planting after June
10 will still be early enough to plant your tomatoes in the garden.
