Tomato Seedling Giveaway Day

I have started so many tomato seedlings this year that I thought it might be fun to host a tomato seedling giveaway. They are all very healthy and organic, most are heirlooms but there are also some proven hybrids. I will put a limit of 2 per person. If you have something to trade the limit may be negotiable, but really I would just like to share my bounty with fellow tomato lovers and gardeners. Maybe a tomato festival is in our future?
The pictures are from last years bounty.

Event Date: 3/21/10
Event Time 10-1pm
Send me an email for address and directions.
Please feel free to tour the garden and visit, but please no smoking or pets. Kids are great if supervised.

Seed Delivery!!!!!

Last Wednesday when it was snowing, I received a knock at the door. Much to my delight, it was my seed delivery from Territorial Seeds. I love the ritual of reading the catalogues in Winter and carefully making my selections for Spring. This year I decided to try Partenon squash, a variety that doesn't require insect pollination. I plan on covering the plants with floating row cover and eating squash all summer. Every year the evil squash vine borers (actually quite pretty) destroy my squash. I hope to thwart the enemy by keeping the plants covered. I always feel a bit like Elmer Fudd when working against the borers and the stink bugs, but in Winter before the battle begins, I feel quite clever.
