Clarification of Tomato Plant Sale
April 29, 2010
I realize that my choice of words for pre-pre-orders and pre-orders was pretty crappy. Here’s my attempt at correcting any misunderstandings. There are two sales this year:
Buy a Seed to be Sown for You Sale
This is the pre-pre-order that closed on March 20th (yeah, dumb name but it was all I could think of at the time). My thought was that people who really knew what they wanted early in the year could tell me and I would sow a seed for them that they could buy as a seedling later on. These pre-ordered seeds would be sown at the same time as I normally sow seeds for my tomato plant sale (see next).
Buy a Seedling Sale
This is the pre-order that I had last year. I’ve started about 50 different types of tomatoes (a lot of red-coloured tomatoes as well as cherries) and I have about 400 seedlings. If you can believe it, I’ve scaled back from last year when I had 800 seedlings. These seedlings will be available for purchase mid-May, after I’ve hardened them off.
Details of the Buy a Seedling Sale will be posted soon and people who are interested can email me with their selections for pick-up in mid-May.
In the meantime, here are my little seedlings in the garage:
