New additions...

Ordered several new seeds today, so soon I'll have some new items to add to the inventory. Also ordered two different kinds of strawberry roots, so I'll be able to sell strawberry plants this year as well. One I've grown before and it is VERY prolific - it was still growing strawberries when it snowed here in November. The other grows very large, tasty berries. I'm looking forward to trying that one out.

gladiator.png Tomato, Gladiator Hybrid
A champion ‘Roma’ tomato with unbeatable vigor, flavor, aroma and yield.
Gigantic ‘Gladiator’ is the hands-down champion in the arena of ‘Roma’ tomatoes. With an unbeatable armor of vigor, flavor, aroma and yield, it bears a bounty of oval 8 oz. fruit on the patio or in a small garden. Its dense flesh and tangy taste make ‘Gladiator’ victorious for imparting rich, robust flavor to paste, sauces, soups, salsa, or ketchup. Strong roots conquer enemies such as blossom end rot. Indeterminate.
eggplant.png Eggplant, Meatball Hybrid
The meatiest, tastiest, flavorfulest eggplant ever. A virtuoso of versatility.
Meet the mightiest, meatiest eggplant ever. Imagine fresh, home-grown, vine-ripened meat: that’s ‘Meatball’. Fruit’s dense, moist, flavorful flesh captures the flavor and texture of meat as no other eggplant—or any vegetable—can. Roly-poly, jewel-toned, moist, and super-flavorful, large 5” fruits are virtuosos of versatility, as entrees, appetizers, side dishes, or sauces. However you slice it, or cook it—as cutlets, in stirfries, pastas, curries, dips, salads, or mashed for baba ghanoush—‘Meatball’ is a marvel.

Tomato, SuperSauce Hybrid
The world's largest sauce tomato!
It's SuperSauce! The new tomato superhero. A whole lot bigger, a whole lot better, a Roma with aroma. Weighing in at 2 lb., a whopping 5.5" tall x 5" wide, SuperSauce produces gallons of luscious, seedless sauce from a single plant harvest - one tomato fills an entire sauce jar. Very few people in the gardening world consider a paste tomato for anything other than making paste or sauce. SuperSauce also makes a superlative salad tomato; it's perfect for a meaty and tasty hamburger slice too. Indeterminate, disease-free plants yield a summer-long supply of the exquisitely flavored marinara, tomato gravy or meat sauce plus plenty for salads and slicing. SuperSauce takes 7-12 days to germinate.
