found this pic on-line and for obvious reasons, love it. i think i have many of these varieties but obviously have way more to go!
I have the best bosses and friends a lady could ask for. In these pictures, you can see my bosses working to help me get my garden planted before I had to leave town suddenly for personal reasons. Starting to look like a garden & not just a phlox patch!
I love hearing from my customers & getting emails like this:
"I love the variety and selection you offer! It is fantastic to see tomatoes and peppers that you wouldn't see in grocery stores. I have a big Yellow Pear Tomato and Black Sea Man tomato in the back yard starting to flower and your red and chocolate peppers are doing well too!"

In an incredible and amazing stroke of luck, I just got offered the use of this wonderful space to grow in this season. i have always been blessed by offerings of great land to grow on, but they are always outside of the city. And for this full-time working, non-driving girl, that prospect was really starting to stress me out for this upcoming season (I had a great place at a farm last year that I was planning on returning to, but had a hard time getting out there to even start) ..... Then, someone offered my an urban location just blocks from my home with a very accessible water source (a tap!), a cold frame, and a huge amount of space to grow ... couldn't be more grateful or excited!!
super beautiful flowers lining the entrance!
when i first arrived to start weeding! .... and just a few hours later! weeding happened much easier and faster than I could have imagined. just another great sign that it is going to be a great season at this new spot!
this year for the first time I used my own home as my greenhouse. some experimenting was done, but it worked out pretty well. my front sunroom worked perfectly as a greenhouse!
also used my front porch as a transplanting station once it got warmer out.
luckily i have lots of space & i don't mind sharing it with hundreds of ever-growing plant babies! here they are getting ready to head off to market as little guys!
booth all set-up & ready to go in the lovely early morning sun
plants are selling quickly!
one little allegory sunset plant left!
