We offer more than 200 varieties of tomato plants, about 60 varieties of pepper plants, and 19 varieties of eggplant.  We sell only open-pollinated (non-hybrid) and heirloom varieties because we care about wholesome, healthful foods, free of human tinkering. We love the sense of continuity we feel with growers of past generations, whenever we harvest heirloom produce in our own garden! We enjoy growing crops that have been saved by generations of growers because they have genuinely good characteristics that have been and continue to be of value to gardeners like us!  And like so many other gardeners, we feel that heirloom varieties often taste better than the rigid faux-veggies that have been foisted upon unwary consumers for the convenience of big agri-business!  So we support taking control over our diet, health, and lives....one pesticide-free heirloom plant at a time!



TOMATOES: We continue to offer a superb selection of  Heirloom Tomato varieties, including quite a few that, we believe, are to be found nowhere else.

EGGPLANT: We offer a great selection of Heirloom Eggplant varieties this year. Many are available as plants nowhere else that we know of!

PEPPERS: We offer about 60 varieties of Heirloom Peppers, featuring both sweet and hot types.

SWEET POTATOES: We expect to offer more varieties of Heirloom Sweet Potato starts this year, for shipping starting in late April.

RARE SOLANUMS: We offer a page of unusual Solanum Family plants, some of them quite rare and all of them fascinating!  Our line-up includes some very rare (non-commercially available) tomato plants, as well as little-known eggplant relatives, Nicotianas (tobaccos and ornamental tobaccos), Brugmansias, Datura, Tree Tomato, and others.

HERBS:  We're really excited about our numerous new listings in the herb category.

CUSTOM GROWING: Don't see that "must have" variety in our regular offerings?  We're happy to do custom sowings of unlisted varieties, often at no extra charge!  But you must order early enough to allow the plants to reach shipping size.  More Information

OTHER PLANTS: A page of other plant offerings!  Found here will be a miscellany of fascinating and useful plants that have captured our interest or affections, but that really belong in no other category on this site.  Most are old garden friends, things like Jerusalem Artichoke or Comfrey.  Others will be newer addenda to North American gardens:  Bolivian Sunroot  (Yacon)  and probably others.   And finally, we include a few rare old varieties of Heirloom Flowers, once common in our great-grandparents' gardens  but now exceedingly rare.
