|Silvery Fir Tree is one of the varieties available|
We selected tomatoes that have a determinate habit, also called "bush" tomatoes. These tomatoes grow to a more compact height than the indeterminate tomatoes that need a trellis or staking system. Most of the tomato varieties we're offering for sale are ones that we have grown for years.
For peppers, we're offering a sweet green bell pepper, as well as three different hot peppers.
We start the seedlings in a organic seed starting mixture in seedling flats. When the plants develop leaves, they are transplanted into three-inch square peat pots with a compost-based potting soil. We have found that using a seed starting mix allows for better development of strong root systems.
Our plants are grown in our heated greenhouse under lights.
Cost for individual plants will range from $3.75 to $4.25, depending upon the seed costs. We will be developing a list of available certified organic plant starts and suggest that you reserve your plants in advance by either calling the farm (814-274-8004) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
