The GREAT Tomato Plant Giveaway
All participants should understand what a great debt they owe to those caring, giving individuals who have helped foster tomato plants. Without the help of foster plant parents, Giveaway participants might have ended up with two trays of half-wilted tomato plants for me to give away.
Barb and Marlana Y took in 11 trays. Barb is like "The Tomato Whisperer;" she coaxes the plants into terrific healthy growth. If you're lucky enough to get one of her fostered tomatoes, you'll be rewarded by a really wonderful tomato plant. Hasu A, a first-time participant in The Giveaway, took a bunch of trays and worked her magic on the plants. We had an inter-state foster parent in Samantha A with a hand off from Anita K, who transported the plants to Philly from where Samantha continued their journey to her home in NJ. Samantha didn't have a sunny windowsill to share, but she did have light in her bathroom! I kind of ambushed Cookie C and Eileen C at the office, each into taking a tray and bringing back very, very nice plants. Cindy H, who supplied the seeds to the Tomatoberry tomato plants, added to her generosity by taking in a couple of tomato trays as well. If I'm remembering correctly, this was Mary Alice L's THIRD year of fostering tomatoes. She has been such a big help to me. I cannot express enough undying gratitude to her. Bart and Chris P were able to take a tray this year, and it came back filling the room with the sweet small of tomatoes. Finally, Helen and Demetrius V! They've had my back fostering plants for years. They upped the tally of trays they took in to 2 this year, finding two sunny windows to fill with tomato plants. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! May all your gardens burst with unbelievable harvests.
I am a woman on a mission.
I want to encourage EVERYONE to try their hand at growing their OWN tomatoes.
To that end, I will grow and give away - FOR FREE -
organically grown heirloom and non-GMO hybrid tomato plants.
Basil, celery, squash, sunflower, pepper and cucumber plants will be offered as well.
Worm Poop, Worm Poop Juice, and even the Wormies themselves will also be available.
New for this year, an organic fertilizer called Trifecta to try out in your garden.
