A couple of years ago we lost our big greenhouse to bad weather. Since then we haven't had the room for both tomato and pepper transplants, so no I don't have pepper seeds any more.

I had come up with a way to keep squash isolated by planting small sections in neighboring fields. But that fell apart with bad weather during planting season. So I'm not offering squash seeds either for now.

Farming isn't easy. Always something to go wrong.

I've made several updates to my variety pages. We have over 30 new-to-me varieties this year with more coming when they are dry and tested.

I lost at least 4 weeks when I had only 1 workable hand, but now I'm getting all the older seeds retested for germination. So far 70+ tests are done, 100+ are in process and several hundred more need to be done as I have room. I'm updating the site as I get the results.

I'm sorry but I had to raise the prices a bit as the farm has been hemorrhaging money. It's that or I'll have to quit the seeds and I don't want to do that if at all possible.

Thanks,
Carol

It's now Jan 2019. I updated for the new seeds about 2 weeks ago. We have over 40 new-to-me varieties this year. But for a lot of the varieties I didn't get a whole lot of seeds. Only enough for maybe 10 packs or so. The crummy weather much of the growing season was a large part of that. From Labor day on we were nearly flooded out so just couldn't find much fruit that was useful.

A little update. We took vaca a month earlier than the last several years so it wouldn't interfere with seeding. Good idea, but almost didn't work out. On the last nite I got knocked down by a goofy elevator door that closed suddenly. I landed hard on the same wrist I broke last year (16 mts ago). Broke off another small piece. No way as bad as last time but it has slowed me down again. I have some help for orders so everything is taken care of there. Seeding may be a bit of an issue tho as it involves lifting heavier stuff. I will see if I can manage this week. PT coming up soon I hope.

I received my order just 10 days after ordering. Pretty fast service for someone with a broken wrist I think. Best wishes for your speedy and complete recovery, Carol.
Also thanks for all the free seeds. You are very generous and and have very reasonable prices.

Carol, my order came today. Thank you for the two free "samples". And a huge "Thank You" for your fast turn around and the more than generous seed count. I really like how you post your germination results for each and every variety.

For Tomatoville members, I strongly recommend you visit Carol's website. You cannot possibly be disappointed with the prompt and generous service you'll find.
