October is the best time to start a garden in Miami if you want to get the most out of the growing season.  Our 4th Annual Heirloom Tomato Seedling Sale is scheduled for Saturday October 19, 2013.  We are preparing 25 varieties of heirloom tomato plants, peppers, eggplants, herbs and a wide selection of garden ready veggie seedlings!  So many of you have grown our seedlings the past few years and expressed intense satisfaction.  That’s because our seedlings are grown with care in our awesome home made compost with added peat moss and perlite for balanced water retention and air flow.  NO PESTICIDES, NO CHEMICALS!  They are started in 100% bio-degradable peat pots and fed organic fish spray once a week; you get them at 5-6 weeks so they are big, strong, healthy and ready to be transplanted.

This year we will also be selling our awesome home made compost.  It is made from kitchen scraps, garden waste and horse manure, aged 1 year and freshly screened.  Bring a 5 gallon bucket and we’ll fill it for $20.  *Supply is limited, first come, first serve.

 

Choose from 25 different varieties of heirloom tomatoes, including cherries, medium sized, beefsteaks, paste and a new category this year, nematode and disease resistant tomatoes.  We’ll also have herbs, 5 Asian eggplant varieties, 5 peppers, both sweet and hot and over a dozen vegetables to complete your kitchen garden.  Check out the lists below for specific varieties!

    I bought serveral starters last year and they grew well in very difficult conditions on my patio. I am happy to report I have a small plot with a raised bed this year. I’m excited. I was wondering if there is any chance of picking up some of the compost as to get the bed ready. I am very close and can stop by anytime. Thanks. Looking forward to the new season and perhaps getting to meet ur daughter I think. Thanks Doug email or 786-897-2229
