Online Plant Sales OPEN!

Today went very well with quite  a few folks stopping by to get plants and following social distancing guidelines.  Good job everyone!

I have quite a few Ananas Noir, Brandywine Black, Black Cherry, CDBA, most of the Dwarf Varieties, Early Girl, RPGSS, Sungold, Sunrise Bumblebee, Purple Bumblebee, and Yellow Pear left.  I have just a few of about 25 other types, but am not going to list them as there aren’t many of each.

I have a few eggplant left, shishito peppers, jalapeno peppers, and some superhots as well.  I’m out of basils and cucumbers.  I have papalo and perilla ad Korean mint.

If you’d like to just have me pick out your plants, I’m more than happy to do that.  Just say in the notes of your payment how many plants you’d like and if you’d like large fruited or small fruited tomatoes; sweet, hot, or super hot peppers; Italian or Asian eggplant and basil; and slicing or pickling cucumbers.  I’ll find plants that fit your needs and who knows, you may end up with a new favorite!

I will only be accepting online orders and payments from now on…PayPal only, no checks or cash.  The first day orders may be picked up is Sunday, May 2nd.  


To keep my sanity and make this process as effective and efficient as possible, I ask for you to follow these steps to place your orders for plants.

  1. Determine which varieties of tomato, pepper, eggplant, cucumber, and/or herb plants you would like to have in your order and the quantity of each.  Please review my list as some varieties have changed since the initial publication.
    Multiply the number of plants you wish to purchase by $2.50 to come up with your total cost.
  2. Use PayPal to send money to
  3. In the “notes” section, include your list of plants (Use the abbreviations if possible) and quantity of each.

    Also include the date you would like to pick up your plants.

    Plants will be available beginning May 3rd .  Orders must be placed at least TWO days prior to your pickup date to ensure I have time to fill the order.

  4. Plants will be in boxes by my driveway gate beginning at 8 a.m. on the day you indicated that you will pick them up.  My address is 215 East 97th Street, KCMO
  5. Understand that if I am out of a particular variety that you ordered, I will substitute it with a comparable plant variety.

Open Sales this Saturday!

With some relaxation on the Covid 19 situation, I’m going to attempt to open for plant sales on Saturday morning, May 9th from 8 a.m. to noon.  I will fill all existing orders I have now, but will no longer be accepting orders for pickup.

We will be following strict social distancing guidelines by allowing only 2 customers at a time on my back patio.  Please bring your own box or container to carry your plants home in.  I will be accepting cash, check, or payment through PayPal.

All transactions will be no-contact and I will have a drop box for you to put your payments in.  I will remain in an area adjacent to the plants and will guide you the best I can to find the plants you want.

A week or so ago I found a stash of plants I had not potted up and I was able to get several varieties back in the inventory.  I do not have a complete inventory of what I have, but I do have at least 50 types of tomato plants left, several types of sweet and hot and superhot peppers, and eggplant as well.  My herb and cucumber (except for perilla) supply is all but gone, so don’t count on those being available if you are in need.

When you arrive at my home (215 East 97th Street, KCMO),  please use the circle drive to avoid parking on the street.  If you come back to the patio and see two or more people already there, please wait in the driveway until they are finished purchasing their plants.  If for some reason, people are not able to practice social distancing and be patient, I will lock the gate and shut off sales, so please be patient!

Thank you so much!
