Why We Wouldn’t Sell Tomato Plants in April

April 8. Several folks dropped by the farm today asking for tomatoes. We said Yes, there are tomatoes in the greenhouse, and No, we won’t sell them to you.

Why? We’re not big box store, we want your gardens to thrive. We had frost yesterday, and there’s still a chance of frost for another month! It’s too early for tomatoes, peppers and certain other plants.

We’re happy to sell our plants once the temps are appropriate. We also support local gardeners with tilling services, sales of compost and topsoil, and a variety of gardening classes every spring.
