SEEDLINGS - you pick up - LOCALLY ONLY
Now taking advance orders for seedlings, especially tomato seedlings! Since Delectation of Tomatoes is now located in a small town (East Carbon, Utah) at least two hours from any large population centers, Please order a minimum of at least one tray (18 seedlings). Consider cooperating with other gardening friends you know to put in larger orders.
Seedlings will be ready for transplanting in early May, 2020! Seedlings purchased and picked up in person, $3 each with discounts for larger quantities (see prices below). Pay here, by PayPal directly to email@example.com, by check to Delectation of Tomatoes, by cash in person, by Venmo to @Dale-Thurberor request an electronic invoice.
** PLEASE NOTE ** Delectation of Tomatoes is not equipped or staffed to ship seedlings. This offer is only for people willing to drive to the Price, Utah area. For larger orders ($150 plus), I can make a special trip, within reason. It costs around $50 just in gas for me to make a trip to the Wasatch Front. I am looking into making arrangements for a retail outlet. Stay tuned! There is no guarantee that seedlings listed below or in links are still available. They sell fast - it is a six-week process to get seedlings to planting size. Here is a link to the relevant ad on KSL Classifieds:
(To be inserted here in early May)
And a link to an online catalog describing the 150 varieties raised for sharing with other gardeners:
(Note - this link is from 2019; many modifications will be made over the next few weeks, so stay tuned)
Delectation of Tomatoes Catalog for Seedlings May 2019
There will be significant overlap with between this and the 2020 catalog - please check back by early April to view the 2020 updated catalog.
Seedlings of around 15 varieties of peppers will also be available, along with a few ground cherries.
** PLEASE NOTE ** Delectation of Tomatoes is not equipped or staffed to ship seedlings. This offer is only for people willing to drive to the Price, Utah area to pick up seedlings in person; local delivery option available if you purchase at least 4 full trays, or 72 seedlings or more, depending upon how far the drive is. There is a chance I will be able to ship seedlings in May, depending upon whether I get some good help and enough advance notice; but for now, regrettably, I need to decline.
Variety selection will be based upon these criteria: very tasty, productive, attractive, extra early, and/or dwarf varieties suitable for gardeners with small growing areas. All of these varieties have performed well in the Wasatch Front area. For example, here are the varieties from 2018, listed in a blog post:
Aside from the 100+ varieties grown for sharing with other gardeners, there will likely be one or two seedlings available of around 200 additional varieties - extras seedlings from the large-scale seed-saving project. As I'm focusing primarily on seed production, these extra seedlings may hold some real interest for the adventurous tomato gardener!
Seedlings of at least 50 early tomato varieties will be ready for transplant in early May, 2020. Please refer to blog posts for updates:
All seedlings are raised using only OMRI listed products (i.e. organic) with all the good stuff (kelp meal, full array of trace minerals, bat guano, perlite, etc.), thoroughly hardened off, and in 3-1/2" pots.
