Much of the fun of heirloom vegetables comes from the wonderful variety of colors and shapes from these old plants ---- tomatoes that are red, pink, orange, yellow, green, purple, white, and even striped! There are also plants with great names, and great stories. Like the Mortgage Lifter tomato, which got its name back in the 1930's when it was developed by a radiator repairman who sold the seedlings for $1 each and managed to pay off his $6,000 mortgage in just 6 years!
I've posted a list of the seeds we'll be starting in 2009 on my website. You can check it out by going to:
