A friend recently told me about a local grower of heirloom tomatoes and since I am starting my vegetable & herb garden this year, I had to check it out. Laurel from Laurel's Heirloom Tomato Plants offers 150 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, from small cherry tomato varieties to the huge beefsteaks. Her website lists each tomato along with a picture and a description and lots of good notes on each variety. This past weekend she had a plant sale where I picked up the green zebra and san manzano plants. I can't wait to pot them and see the beautiful fruits! She ships the plants from Gardena, with a minimum order of 1 plant, and she has tons of tips on her site for first time tomato gardeners (like me!). If you live close enough, you can also pick up your order at the nursery.
Most of the 4" plants are $4.50 and some very unique varieties are a little more. She also offers some pepper and basil plants as well.
I'll keep you updated on my tomato plant progress as the season goes on!
