  • Tomatoes, Tomatoes, Tomatoes: We have SO many varieties in-stock in our store right now. We offer a wide selection of cherry tomatoes, heirloom, grafted, slicing, and patio / dwarf tomatoes. Here are a few of Cynthia’s favorites:
    1. Rosella Purple Super Dwarf Tomato
    2. Grafted Sungold Mighty ‘Mato
    3. Grafted Sun Sugar Might ‘Mato
    4. Cherry Tomato Super Sweet 100

  • Fertilizer: We have several products on-hand to make sure you get the most of your plants, while preventing disease like blossom end rot. Look for EB Stone’s Agricultural Lime, Sure Start, and Tomato & Vegetable Food, as well as Bondie’s Rot-Stop and Down-to-Earth Fertilizer Starter Mix.
