Hello People Who Like to Eat Their Gardens!

We have a few too many tomato and pepper starts left over and are now offering them for FREE! Just come on down to the nursery and pick them up. If planted now they should still produce a good crop this September. There are also a limited number of Mighty Mato and Mighty Veggie peppers available.

When you come down don't forget to check out the rest of the nursery. It's looking beautiful.

Don't forget to register for our Tantalizing Tomato Workshop and Tomato Tastings at our Heirloom Tomato Festival. Details are below. These are great events to attend with family and friends and are not-to-be-missed if you love your edibles.

Cheers, Gary and the Phoenicians
