OOPS! We planted way to many plants this year and have decided to offer them at a rate you can't refuse. All plants are currently in 4 inch pots, are being tended and fertilized well, and are ready to be planted now!
You can pick the tomatoes up in West Seattle or on Vashon, or we can deliver in Seattle for a minimum order of 12 plants/30$- get a group order together or plant a huge garden yourself!
We have all Indeterminate tomatoes for sale. They are actually vines that continue growing in length throughout the growing season. Also referred to as "vining" tomatoes, indeterminate tomato varieties will also continue to set and ripen fruit until killed off by frost. You will need to stake these, or use sturdy tomato cages. We put metal stakes in the ground by each tomato, and as they grow we tie them to the stakes, and string twine between the tomatoes so they are supported well. We plant our basil underneath them, but you could put lettuce or another low growing plants there. That will keep the moisture in the ground.
When watering your plants, don't get the leaves wet, and make sure your plant needs water before you irrigate. Dig down about 6 inches to test the soil- if it holds together in your hand you don't need to give it more. The tomato roots go super deep in the ground, and can find water that is there, sooooo make sure you water enough- deep watering every 4-7 days will do much more than a sprinkling everyday! It sounds more difficult than it is, but if you have any questions, call Jayne or Jenn for help, or email email@example.com. Happy Gardening!
Prudens Purple- Early for its size, similar to Brandywine- makes a great sandwich tomato.
span style="font-weight:bold;">Rose de Berne- Vashon Island Farmer's Market taste test winner!This is a superior medium-sized pink tomato that delivers the robust flavor of the bigger types.
Black Cherry Tomato - Two-bite cherries with the dusky color and complex flavor typical of the best black tomatoes.
Juliet Tomato- About 50–80 clusters per plant. The glossy red fruits are good stewing tomatoes and excellent salad tomatoes, and their sauce is tangy with a diverse complex richness and full sweet tomato flavor and good for drying, too.
Sun Gold Cherry Tomato- A perfect combination of deep sweetness with a hint of acid tartness, pop them in your mouth while in the garden weeding- they continue producing until frost.
Sweet Chelsea Cherry Tomato- A reliable heavy producer of luscious big cherries. Another good one for grazing!
