Summer Plants Are Coming

Sprouts of summer crops are starting to fill the greenhouse. The various basils are teeny tiny. I’m still waiting for crops like cucumbers and summer squash to germination. While the eggplants and peppers are starting to grow their first true leaves.  

But the tomatoes plants are vigorous growers and I have been busy potting them up into 3-inch pots. At the market this year I will have five different cherry tomato varieties and twelve different heirloom tomatoes.

Many of the varieties I have grown since I started my farm. But like always, I have added a few new ones to spice things up. With cherries you will see two newcomers named Black Cherry and Be My Baby. The newbies in the heirloom department are Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye and Paul Robeson. I can’t wait to grow these myself and I know home gardeners will love these new varieties for their color variation, great flavor, and their suitability to our growing conditions. I expect to have the full selection of tomato seedlings for sale at the Friday market in about two weeks time.
