Delectation of Tomatoes, etc.

A major objective of Delectation of Tomatoes, etc. is to enhance physical health, contribute to the enjoyment of food, and encourage ecologically responsible and sustainable gardening practices by providing a wide variety of the healthiest, best tasting, and locally grown produce available. We use all natural and OMRI listed products (including humates, compost/worm castings tea, sea kelp, fish emulsion, etc.), amend soil with >70 trace minerals, and control pests with cultural practices.

In 2011 we produced 280 varieties of tomatoes, 52 peppers, 31 melons & cucumbers, 24 squash & pumpkins and dozens of other types & varietes - all this on 1/8th of an acre! In 2012, we plan to increase diversity and quantity. (obviously we're looking for an additional parcel of land...).

Our desire is to deliver this food - super fresh from farm to table - to people primarily through CSA shares. We are also interested in exploring outlets through local restaurants, farmers markets, food coops, and/or roadside stands.

Another major objective is to encourage people to be more self-reliant and less dependent upon "The System" for their food needs. Accordingly, we sell more than 300 varieties of seeds (year round) and starts (Spring). Additionally, we offer gardening assistance (planning, consulting, installation) and plan to offer classes emphasizing self-reliance through food production.

Our first season was 2011 and we had several very satisfied customers - referrals are available!.
