COVID-19 concerns 🕷️
Since Delectation of Tomatoes is a one-person, home-based operation anyhow, there should be no delays or adjustments because of this pandemic, unless the USPS shuts down, which is highly unlikely. So if anything, I will be able to get your seed order sent out even more promptly, as so many meetings and other such distractions have been cancelled.
In inventory are enough seeds, especially tomato seeds, to supply many thousands of small farmers and backyard gardeners. I do so little marketing that only a tiny fraction of the seeds I save are shared with other growers each year.
This seems like a good time to reconsider what you can do for yourself, your family, and your neighbors to help improve your self-reliance. No need for fear-mongering, but there is the possibility of some interruptions in the supply chain of food. Grow your own to stay healthy and independent!
Here is a link to a short video that encapsulates much of what I believe about our relationship to food and community, and underscores some of the reasons I started Delectation of Tomatoes in 2011 and continue to persevere, even through some tough times:

Previous update January 20, 2018
Seeds of around 2,000 varieties of tomatoes are now available. See "Seeds" tab above for the list that was up to date in December, 2018. Still have 18,000+ photos to name and 2,000 descriptions write and upload here - someday, somehow. A summary of the "Biggest and Best" tomatoes from 2018 is posted here:
Biggest and Best Tomatoes of 2018
More than 300 new tomato varieties were grown in 2018, along with replenishment of seed stock of nearly that many more varieties. Plus 100 or so varieties of beans, peppers, lettuce, etc. On deck for 2019, at least 200 more varieties, including over 100 heirloom varieties from Russia!
