Basil, Sage, Tomatoes, Cucumbers at our Stalls at New Town Plaza November 18 and the Farm Gate Market November 19

Benefit from Chris' mass planting.! We have expanded our special for the to all plants in pots. Any 3 advanced plants in paper pots for $10. Its a great deal

3 new varieties of tomato this week Scoresby Dwarf (KY1), Cherokee Purple and Sunray. 

Scoresby Dwarf (KY1) is a personal favourite of mine. A classic Australian heirloom, it grows medium delicious tasting tomatoes on a small bush. Its quick to fruit. We would have had these earlier but we had a dud batch of seeds.

Cherokee Purple comes recommended by a customer for the sweetness of its fruit, reliability and resistance to disease. I'm looking forward to trying this one out.

Sunray produces medium sized light yellow-orange fruit on a dense plant that grows to 1m. Its productive and hardy. We grew these last year and were too lazy to stake them. They did well and came early in a season where all the other tomatoes were late.
