We are happy to offer these healthy young plants to you for your garden. We grow these seeds in our nursery with organic potting soil, water, sun and a little extra heat. While we feel very confident in the health and potential of these plants, we cannot guarantee any specific outcomes with growth or harvest. We don't know your soil conditions and we sure can't predict the weather or the future. Gardening is a risky but rewarding endeavor for all of us! That being said, if you have any questions about how to best care for your plants please don't hesitate to reach out to Annie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vegetables & Fruits
Chiapas Cherry - 4 1/2" pot
We are new to this cherry tomato but so eager to try it out! This is actually a different species of tomato, meaning that it should carry a very wonderful disease resistance.
Please read more here from Fruition Seeds, the grower of our organic seeds:
"HEIRLOOM Along with her sweet yellow cousin Coyote, Organic Chiapas Tomato is always our first and last tomatoes we savor each season and she doesn’t trickle in: Chiapas’ vigorous growth sends cascades of delectable fruit in every direction. Here’s the thing: Chiapas and Coyote share the same genus as most other tomatoes, but not the same species! Among other things, this means they’re a little more wild, a little less domesticated, and as a result, they simply don’t get classic tomato diseases like Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria Leaf Spot. Delectable disease resistance!"
Cherokee Purple- 4 1/2" pot
A dusky pink heirloom that is beloved for flavor and deep color. 8-12 oz fruits on indeterminate vines.
Mountain Magic: Campari Tomato 4 1/2" pot
A stand-by late-blight resistant tomato that we simply adore.
Why do we love it so much? Productivity, amazing flavor, good tomato keeping, great for saucing & for sun-drying (or dehydrating), and excellent late into the season when other tomatoes have failed.
Campari or cocktail tomato -- this means, smaller than a slicer and a bit bigger than a cherry.
Pink Berkley Tie Dye - 4 1/2" pot
A visually stunning and delicious tomato that has become a favorite over the past few years.
Pink with metallic green striping on 8-12 oz fruits. Great for tomato platters, salads, salsas. Indeterminate plant. An open-pollinated "new heirloom" variety: so good we think it'll become a true heirloom one day!
Mountain Merit Tomato: 4 1/2" pot
Red Slicing tomatoes, larger than New Girl at 8-10 oz beefsteak size. Organic seed. A late-blight resistant, widely disease-resistant indeterminant tomato.
New Girl: 4 1/2" pot
Organic hybrid red tomato bearing 4-6 oz fruits. Very disease resistant and indeterminate.
Sungold Cherry Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
Sungold is such a cherry tomato superstar. These little orange sunshine snacks are perfect for a home garden with hungry little gardeners. They sometimes split after big rains, so pick just before and if you get splits you can pick them and roast them for carmelized extra sweetness.
These will be big and healthy plants, bursting to get in the garden and start growing.
Purple Blush Tomatillo - 4 1/2" pot
A highly productive, sweet fruity variety of tomatillo with a little purple blush on the fruit. Tomatillos can be sliced raw in salad or roasted for an amazing salsa. We always find our tomatillos are much more productive and less susceptible to disease than the vast majority of our tomato plants.
Paste Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
This paste tomato is an Italian Heirloom with an ability to tolerate late blight pressure - a key feature in any tomatoes that we are hoping to get big harvests from since 2009!
We loved growing this tomato in 2021 and found them to be a favorite for fresh eating and for saucing, salsa-ing, and more. Heart-shaped, big 1 lb tomatoes that tasted incredible. We got similar feedback from a gardener who bought some plants from us as well.
Striped German - 4 1/2" pot
I love this heirloom tomato most of all! It's ginormous and full of bold colors and stripes. It's delicious eating and has been productive for us.
Here's a picture of some striped german tomatoes next to baby Nico for scale. We were about to pulp these tomatoes up for the seed-saving process.
Carolina Cayenne - 2 1/4"
Hotter than a regular cayenne! Abundant thin-walled fruits, cold-tolerant and spicy as can be.
Carmen Sweet Pepper - 2 1/4" pot
Our favorite red Italian sweet pepper for eating fresh or roasting or grilling or sauteeing! Carmen is fruity and sweet and an old standby for us.
Glow - Sweet Snacking Pepper - 2 1/4" pot
A sweet and delightful 2-4" orange snacking pepper that has been super productive for us over the past many years.
Lively Italian Orange Sweet Pepper - 2 1/4" pot
An open-pollinated sweet Italian pepper that's bright orange, sweetly flavored, and very productive.
Jalapeno Peppers - "Jalafuego" 2 1/4" pot
Jalapenos are such a versatile hot pepper. Grow a plant or two so you can stuff them, make salsa and gnaw on them while eating dinner (I watch the men in my life do this.....maybe this also appeals to you!).
Buena Mulata Rainbow Cayenne - 2 1/4" pot
We love growing this rainbow cayenne. We purchased seed from our favorite local seed company, True Love Seeds. Their description is so rich I will just refer you there right now.
The quick version is that fruits start purple and then turn all sorts of rainbow colors before ripening red. The seed has a rich heritage. Check it out at the link above!
Aji Dulce - 2 1/4" pot
Our sweet dragon of the garden. With all the flavor and complexity of habanero without the terrifying dragon heat. The best ever, period!
Chalk Art - Alya Kaiser
Curly Kale - 4 1/2" pot
A highly productive curly kale. For us, curly kale often grows through the summer and then persists into the winter, beginning to look more and more like a palm tree as it gets taller and lower leaves are picked and eaten.
Best to cover with floating row cover when young to protect from flea beetles. Kale is a heavy feeder, meaning pile on the compost and the nutrients.
Dinosaur Kale 4 1/2" pot
AKA Lacinato Kale. This Dinosaur Kale is the one typically preferred by chefs.
Best to cover with floating row cover when still young to protect from flea beetles.
Bright Lights or Rhubarb Red Swiss Chard - 4 1/2" pot
In the spinach family, chard always has a buttery richness that I love as a cooked green. Bright Lights & Rhubarb Red Chard are bright and beautiful- yellow, pink, white, red and deep rhubarb red. This plant can be grown as an ornamental and edible!
The farmers at Liberty Gardens, the organic veggie farm where I first had a farm job, grow swiss chard as an ornamental in the flower bed in front of their house as well as in the field as part of their crop production.
Sprouting Broccoli - Piraciacaba - 4 1/2" pot
This is a big and bountiful broccoli plant that will produce many tender spring broccoli sprouts if given enough room. It requires a couple feet around it and some good compost to fuel its continued late May and June sprouting. I love fresh snacking on this broccoli and also doing a quick sauté with its tender stems included as well.
Ping Tung Eggplant - 2 1/4" pot
Ping Tung is a high-producing Taiwanese eggplant. It grows long slender eggplants that are great for stirfries and roasting. The fruits grow up to 11" in length, though you may want to harvest a little younger and smaller for more tenderness. Protect plants from flea beetles and potato beetles with floating row cover until they begin flowering.
Black Beauty Eggplant - 2 1/4" pot
This is a classic Italian Eggplant with smaller size 5-6 inch fruits. You may want to trellis this plant to keep it upright as the fruit production comes in fully and can weigh down the plant. No spines on Black Beauty!
Green Zucchini - 4 1/2" pot
A dark glossy green zucchini. The plant is nice and open for easy harvest. We love green zucchini plants not only for their lovely fruits but also for its big blossoms, which can be picked and added to sautés or stuffed with cheese and battered and fried for a very special treat.
48 days to maturity.
"Tempest" Yellow Summer Squash - 4 1/2 " pot
Best yellow squash flavor :) Nutty flavor and firm texture. Holds up well to grilling, roasting, pickling and braising.
These productive yellow squash also sometimes have yellow-colored leaves. Don't be alarmed: it's just normal for this variety. There are spines but they are soft and aren't as scary as many yellow squash for bare arms.
National Pickling Cucumber - 2 1/4" pot
(photo credit Fruition Seeds).
This is a new pickling cucumber to us, but is the winning favorite pickler of one of our new favorite organic seed companies, Fruition Seeds. Petra at Fruition Seeds writes, "The perfect pickle! Impressively prolific, these gorgeously blunt-ended pickling cukes average six inches, though we often harvest them smaller. Whether you’re snacking in the garden, tossing on salads or pickling a pint or filling your pantry, National Pickling will not disappoint you."
Marketmore 76 Cucumber - 2 1/4" pot
This is a classic open-pollinated cucumber variety that's great for slicing for salads. You can also make them into pickles. The cucumbers are 8-9" long when mature and very dark green. This cucumber is a strong producer and tastes good. We grow it every year.
Golden Raspberry, "Anne" - 4 1/2" pot
These are our new favorite incredibly productive golden raspberries. Will bear for months, until hard frost.
Herbs & Flowers
Giant of Italy Parsley - 2 1/4" pot
Italian flat-leafed parsley. When I was in first grade we had to make a little book about our favorite vegetable and I chose parsley. I loved eating the thick juicy stems which are sweet in the spring and late fall, and salty in the summer. My teacher disqualified that choice, saying that parsley is not a vegetable. I disagree -- I think it can be either depending on mood and use!! Go parsley go!!
We plant it out 1 foot in row, 3 rows to a bed.
Thai Basil - 2 1/4" pot
Thai basil is a favorite for thai sautees. Once or twice a year I make an attempt at creating Drunken Noodles and I require thai basil. The result is always good and the thai basil is crucial. I also like to use it in other dishes that I cook - and it can often find a home as a garnish in sweet dishes.
Many people like to use thai basil to pair with desserts (like...with ice cream!).
Basil, Italian - 2 1/4" pot
Italian large-leaf basil as you know it and love it. This variety is called "Rutger's Devotion" and it's downy mildew resistant, which is important these days. We have enjoyed growing it and picking it into late summer.
Pesto, pizza, summer in a nutshell! (Don't forget to get your tomatoes to go along with it!)
Holy Basil/Tulsi "Kapoor" - 2 1/4" pot
Oh I love this plant! It is the best single source herbal tea-plant you can grow in my humble opinion. It will do well in a container or in the soil. It is so revered for it's medicine and it's loveliness in India and I think you will shortly learn why.
Pick leaves and flower and use for tea fresh or dried. Allow some to bloom and you will be feeding the bees. If you allow some of the flowers to make seed, you will have an annual volunteer coming back from seed each spring.
Calendula, Resina -- 2 1/4" pot
One of my most favorite garden flowers which is also a superb medicinal. Flowers are bright yellow, cheerful and plentiful, especially if you pick the flowers off as they mature to make room for new ones. Calendula flowers are excellent in teas and are also a common ingredient in salves for skin healing. A plant that brings in the sunshine in so many ways! Called Calendula because they are quite hardy and in a mild winter can bloom every month of the calendar year. (Don't expect that in this climate, but I have seen them blooming in late november). Saving seed from these guys is easy too. Check out some details on that and also the source of our calendula seed here: https://trueloveseeds.com/products/resina-calendula-1
Valerian - 2 1/4" pot
Valerian is one of my favorite herbs. You may know it as a remedy for insomnia, and it's true that it's pungent smelling root can be used for this. However! It's such a lovely garden friend with big white inflorescences that smell so good. 3-4 feet in height. Fern-like lovely foliage.
Flowers in its second year.
Dig roots the fall of the first year or spring of the second.
This variety from Strictly Medicinal Seeds, their own special cultivar they call "homestash" which is very root productive. Widely adaptable to different soils.
Dill - 2 1/4" pot
Dill is a joy to grow in the garden. Gorgeous ferny leaves, blooming with bright yellow umbels. A cooling, refreshing herb, perfect for a sauce with yogurt, to mince and mix with salad, to use in pickling. Easy to grow, will self-sow if you allow it!
Chamomile - 2 1/4" pot
Such a beautiful and giving plant! Our favorite nightly tea for me and Nico.
Each pot will have a little clump of chamomile plants, which you can plant as a clump or separate gently and spread out in the garden.
I like to grow a patch of chamomile and then allow some to go to see so it will spring up again the next season.
Tea is made from dried flowers.
Summer Savory: 2 1/4" pot
One of my absolute favorite herbs: a secret gem. Very spicy and peppery with notes of marjoram, thyme and mint. Easy to dry. Great for flavoring beans, potatoes, cabbage and sauerkraut. Satureja hortensis
Ashwagandha 2 1/4" pot
If you can grow tomatoes, you can grow Ashwagandha. In the same family and with a similar growth habit and requirements. Slower to start but then gets rolling. Dig roots in the fall for herbal tea. Please read more about uses for this powerful plant where we originally sourced our seed at True Love's website.

Our lamb was raised in a pasture rotation and the animals were roughly one year of age at their butcher date. The flavor of this lamb is not muttony nor gamey -- it is quite rich and delicious: perhaps reminiscent of the best beef you've ever had. All roasts are bone-in. Take advantage of this and make a stock and lamb stew after slow-cooking your roast.
All our lamb is USDA inspected and vac-sealed.
Which cut should you chose?
If you want to make delicious lamb sliders, meatballs, or an exciting meat for taco night, buy a couple packs of ground.
For roasts, shanks and leg of lamb, you will want to cook low and slow. I'm actually beginning to prefer the incredible flavors and tender texture that result from these cuts when they're cooked well above all else.
Good pairings with lamb are onions & garlic, rosemary, tomato, and sharper or even citrusy flavors like sumac and pomegranate.
