These will look lovely all across the shade of our creekbank & in our fern bed. We are so grateful to Nicola, who kindly offered to combine shipping charges when she noticed I had placed several orders during the day. Not every seller on Etsy is as responsive & thoughtful as Nicola. And when David, my partner, saw "The Gifted Tomato" on the package label he was really excited! So I am going to order Heirloom Tomato seeds for a pre-Father's Day present. He loves growing tomatoes! ... AND our seeds were sent immediately- which is awesome. Thank you Nicola!!! We will add pics later when everything blooms so beautifully! 💐

These butterflies are absolutely beautiful! I'm adding them to a garden gift basket and they will be the "show stopper". Shipping was fast and safely packaged.

About

How did I get here?

It all began in 1992 with a catalog of tomato seeds. I had never seen such great tomatoes, ordered lots of seed and planted the lot! ( around 3000)
I never considered what I would do with all those tomatoes until I was knee deep in them. That was also the year I discovered "canning" and that there is a huge market for fresh, organic vegetables. Kids followed, as they tend to do and I found myself looking for products that were not loaded with chemicals. Finding very few, I began to make my own. The garden got bigger and bigger, "fresh eggs," chickens, that's what we need!
More canning, making fresh sausage ( with fresh herbs) making soap, ( with fresh herbs) jams and juice. etc, etc.
People found out about me and started requesting I grow and make stuff for them! (garden got bigger!) A small CSA followed and a small farm stand each summer. ( Some folks can get quite "miffed" if you run out of blackberry jam)

All I can say is, There is nothing better than having NO cherry tomatoes because the kids have eaten them all!
In my shop you will find great seeds that have worked well for me over the years and these are my favorites.
Happy Gardening.

Hello. I love anything and everything "garden" From floral pillows to old antique, rusty garden tools. My garden is my refuge and business. I am a landscaper ( real job) and vegetable grower ( fun job). During the summer I run a small CSA and farmstand. Over the last 20 years or so I have grown, cooked and tried just about every gardening technique and vegetable there is. I now have my tried and true things that work for me and my busy family. Hopefully I can help you to grow a successful garden without making all the mistakes I did. Teaching kids to grow vegetables and eat them is very important to me as they are our future.
I dont include a receipt with any of my orders.
