Call us: 860-740-6938 Want to know How to Grow Heirloom Tomatoes? or just how to grow tomatoes? Today we talk with my neighbor Priscilla, who is an heirloom tomato expert, and has more energy than I do even after drinking lots of coffee. Priscilla grows tomato seedlings of 30 different heirloom tomato varieties each year and sells the young plants at her farm stand at the end of her driveway.
Priscilla mentioned several seed companies she is ordering from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds has a beautiful catalog and is very pro-active about heirloom seeds. Their site is here http://rareseeds.com/
Totally Tomatoes is a catalog that has more tomato varieties than anyone else, I think. Their site is here http://www.totallytomato.com/
Shumway Seeds website is here: http://www.rhshumway.com/
We will also be posting a new GardenFork video this week on how to start vegetable seeds in these neat homemade cardboard containers Priscilla showed us how to make.
Some of my favorite heirloom tomato varieties are Black Krim, Mortgage Lifter, Prudens Purple, and Juliette.
