You might be interested in a update on the North Stonington (CT) Garden Club’s plant sale, which was held on Saturday, May 8th (yes, same day as the East Farm Festival).
We had, as always, a successful plant sale. But of particular interest to local gardeners, it seemed, were our heirloom tomato plants.
If you missed my earlier post, I raised almost 300 heirloom tomato plants to be sold at the North Stonington Garden Club’s annual plant sale. We held a poll, in which the public was invited to help select the varieties. Ultimately we had 12 different varieties of heirloom tomato plants, including Chocolate Cherry, Amish Paste and Pineapple, to name a few.
Below is a shot of our tomato tables as we set them up for the plant sale. I figure this was taken around 8:45 am, 15 minutes before opening.
Below are the same tables by 9:15 am, only 15 minutes after the sale started.
It was a tomato feeding frenzy. We sold almost 300 plants in about 15 minutes. Color me stunned. I’m thinking next year we’re gonna need a lot more tomatoes!
