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 I’m a “retired” indoor kitty now.

This spring’s 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 normal.

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.
