Tomato Plant Sale & Orchard Update

Chickens in one of the Gardens
In the orchard we have been testing and adjusting irrigation, hand thinning fruit from the peach and Asian pear trees and getting the gardens ready for planting.   Because of all the rain, the orchard is lush and green this year.  All the rain has been good for the trees, but it has meant a lot of mowing and weeding.

We have extra tomato plants that we grew by seed that are not needed in our gardens, so we're putting them for sale at the fruit stand.  The plants are grown in a mix of organic potting soil and our garden soil.  Varieties include Italian Roma, Mortgage Lifter, Pio Goliath, Red Brandywine, Hillbilly, Mandarin Cross, Pruden's Purple, Purple Cherokee, Berkeley Tie Dye, Bing Cherry and Sungold.

At the fruit stand we have:
  • Fruit--Lemons, Dried peaches and figs,
  • Vegetables--Mustard greens,Swiss chard, Peas
  • Fresh Herbs--Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme, Mint
  • Jam--From Good Stuff Jam,
  • Local free range chicken eggs
  • Tomato Plants

Hello there, do you still growing fresh Ume (Japanese apricot)? I saw your post on 2011 while I am searching for fresh Ume. Thanks.
