That stinks on the loss of 1000. But, the risk is what we signed up for, when you get into the business end of it.


But otherwise all is looking great.

So busy can hardly update. Plus new phone & comp. and both are taking some getting used to. This Spring has been insane and my tomato plants look worse and I have less selection than ever before, yet already recouped all money spent and sold nearly double the plants this month compared to last year. Our farmer friends hosted a plant sale event and we did very well. Here are some pics of the goings on.

Looking good man. Its nice when we have been setting on plants to finally start moving them, and have the cash as a reward for the work.


You mention about the "look" of your mater plants. Funny thing is, we as the a grower and connoisseur, are far more critical then the average consumer.
