We have grown tomato seeds for you 🍅🪴🍅

Last year we were asked several times if we had tomato plants for sale, also early this year, so we decided to give it a go by asking one of our trusted keen gardeners, who also happens to be family, if she would give it a go 🍅 
The result is two varieties of healthy little plants 🪴 thank you @vonparsons for taking the time to nurture these seeds into well rooted tomato plants.
