*** UPDATE 5-26-2021 ***
Within the past few days, I've dropped off several hundred seedlings of peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, tomatillos and ground cherries at pick-up locations in Utah, Tooele and Salt Lake County.
Seedlings are now fully available in Carbon County - at home base where the largest selections are available.
Special orders for seedlings will be open on January 01, 2022 for the 2022 growing season and will close on April 1st. It takes 4-10 weeks to get seedlings up to size, depending upon plant type.
Local Pickup Only planned - no mail ordering of seedlings. This may change if I can manage to get some help. Seeds of >3,000 varieties can be ordered from the Store Tab above.
At least 5 pickup locations throughout Utah are available (addresses listed below), plus special delivery options for larger orders within a reasonable distance.
For 2022 special ordering, please submit your request for specific varieties of seedlings via email after January 1st, 2022 to:
Payment only upon pickup, no pre-payment needed.
*** NO MAIL-ORDER SHIPPING OF SEEDLINGS AVAILABLE IN 2021 ***

** PLEASE NOTE ** Delectation of Tomatoes is not equipped or staffed to package and ship seedlings. This offer is only for people willing to drive to the Price, Utah area to pick up seedlings in person. Special delivery options may be available after May 15th for larger orders. Please email me at email@example.com to make arrangements. But I am planning to drop of a few trays of seedlings in Utah and/or Salt Lake County around May 20th. Locations are still to be determined - stay posted here!
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.
Aside from the 100+ varieties grown for sharing with other gardeners, there will likely be one or two seedlings available of around 50 additional varieties - extras seedlings from the seed-saving project. As I'm focusing primarily on seed production, these extra seedlings may hold some real interest for the adventurous tomato gardener!
All seedlings are raised using only OMRI listed products (i.e. organic, though not officially certified...) with all the good stuff (full array of trace minerals, etc.), thoroughly hardened off, and in 3-1/2" pots.
Payment expected only upon pickup or delivery. Mistakes or accidents could happen between now and then...
Prices for seedlings picked up in person:
$3.00 - individual seedlings if you purchase between 1 and 17 seedlings
$2.50 - per seedling if you purchase a full tray (18 seedlings) or more
$2.00 - per seedling ($36 per tray) if you purchase at least four full trays (72 seedlings)
For advance ordering, please see "Seedlings" under the Store tab for purchasing through PayPal or Credit/Debit card:
Payment at time of pick up. For additional details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working on establishing a pick up location near I-15 in Utah and/or Salt Lake County....
It's always a good idea to email first, email@example.com, If you prefer text or phone conversation, I will be glad to give you my phone number via email.
Best of luck with your 2021 garden!
