2021 Update

We are doing well and hope all of you and yours have survived all the craziness of 2020.
This year we will again be only selling at our home location – not at the Farmer’s Market! 

Pepper seedlings have already been started and we will be starting tomatoes soon. Below is a listing of the varieties we have scheduled to start. I’m sure there will be changes to the list as things germinate- or don’t as the case may be. Hopefully, this year we won’t get another contaminated batch of seed starting mix! Check back periodically for additions or changes to the lists.

Plants can be pre-ordered by using the Wishlist on the website. We will have to wait to see how the weather progresses before giving opening date - should be Mid May.
You may arrange for a pickup date and time.

If you have a favorite tomato variety that is not on the list that you really want – please let us know. If you catch us by early March, we can try to start it for you if we have it.
However, there are over 275 varieties here so there is plenty to choose from! The names listed with an * are new this year. Almost all of these varieties can be found on the web for more information but you can email us at plantswithstories@gmail.com if you have any questions.
We have added quite a few more Dwarf varieties for planting in containers.

Check out the pepper page for a listing of varieties available.

We are planning to again have a nice selection of salad fixings including some new Asian greens and mustards, herbs including our Italian basil, and other vegetables.
Lists to be added on appropriate page when closer to sowing time.

We are looking forward to seeing you again this year!
