Plant starts

Order your custom tomato starts!    $4.50 each

Tomatoes are just about the most fun vegetable to grow – there’s no limit to the number of varieties available, and they are nutritious and can be used in many ways. And there’s nothing as sublime as a fresh, sun-ripened, juicy tomato fresh off the vine… just delicious.

For details on the tomato varieties, see Tomatoes.

I am no longer generally offering pepper or eggplant starts, as we needed to simplify things and tomatoes are what I love, but since I start them for myself I sometimes have some available.



Plants are by pre-order, please decide what you want in March; for varieties, see tomatoes. I start seeds to order, and deliver large, healthy plants sometime in May, depending on when you want them.

With Covid I have been unable to get enough coffee cups, so plants are delivered in a mix of cups, cartons and plastic pots. Please return these deep plastic pots for reuse!
We aren’t certified organic, but I don’t use any inputs that are not allowed (not sure about traces of coffee in the cups). About half the seed is certified.


You can order by email, phone, or in person. After you order and I’ve got things germinating, I’ll send you a confirmation and you can be sure you’ll get your plants. I start a extra in case of accidents and for last-minute sales, but I do run out so pre-order by the end of March to be absolutely sure. As planting time gets closer, I’ll send another email to arrange pickup. You can pick up at the farm or at any of our various trips to Beaverton, Ashland, or elsewhere. We do not ship.


Plants should be picked up by the end of May unless special arrangements are made.

Even after you pick up your plants, please let me know if there are ANY problems. Even for things like late frosts or stepped-on plants that aren’t our fault, we’ll provide replacements, if we still have anything available.
