Florence Lauderdale Farmers Market – May 8, 2021

Heirloom tomato plants in small pots inside boxes

We have a booth reserved at the Florence Lauderdale Farmers Market for May 8, 2021, where Sheree will be selling heirloom tomato plants. See below for listing of varieties available this week. Prices range from $3 to $5 per plant depending on the size of pot and how many transplants.

This week’s selection are grown from certified organic seed in a custom potting mix blend that Sheree mixes in wheelbarrow using a combination of Kellogg OMRI-listed potting mix, Black Cow cow manure, mushroom compost, a bit of peat moss (OMRI-listed supplier), a scoop or two of vermiculite, and a bit of Fox Farm Ocean’s Forest.

The tomato plants in smallest pots are $3 each (these are mainly 3-1/2″ to 4″ pots) and have been transplanted at least once from the starter trays.

Next size up is $4 each. Tomatoes in the largest containers are $5 each.
