Over 40 Varieties of Tomatoes Planted & Flea Market Sale of $1 Tomato Plants

Over 40 Varieties of Tomatoes Planted & 
Flea Market Sale of $1 Tomato Plants

Well I got my tomatoes in. I am excited to be growing over 40 varieties. I seed start more tomatoes than I need and do a yearly flea market where I sell my tomato plants for $1. I also have other vegetable plants, herbs and flowers. If you are in the local Maryland area the address is

Giant Food Inc



It is in the Giant parking lot and it is Sunday May 18th from 10-1 pm. If you are local and need some plants I will have most of the varieties listed below. I sell out fast so this would be for the more local gardeners. I wouldn't travel too far. If it rains they do cancel it but it looks to be a sunny day.

I will also be selling these seeds next year.
