Riverhill Heirloom Tomato, Vegetable, and Perennial Plants Yard Sale: Pictures and Details

If you live in my area would you mind forwarding this to friends and groups. I thank you in advanced.

Well I am very excited. The plants look great. They survived a week of frost and today's tornado like winds. Just about everything is green and growing strong because of the recent heat. There is truth in 80 degree days and 50 degree night. I have well over 500 plants for sale. I think some of the tomatoes will reach 12 inches come Saturday.

The plants have been acclimated to our area for weeks. They are strong and ready to go in the ground. Well okay a few need about a weeks more time in the cups.

The plant yard sale is this Saturday and Sunday 9 am -1 pm in my backyard. Please email me if you need my address. Ninety percent of the plants are being sold for $1. Most of the greens are sold 3 for $1. I will also have seed packs from bulk seeds I purchased.
