Certified Organic Garlic: adds an earthy, robust layer of flavor that makes it a year-round essential. Crushed raw into summer pesto, garlic is bracing, almost biting, and fresh. Roasted in winter, it's nutty and mellow. Chopped and tossed into salad dressing, it wakes up everything around it. Stuffed into a roast, it pushes deep meaty flavor. Always have plenty of garlic on hand.

SALE - slicers for processing: Nice mix of tomatoes, ripe and ideal for processing, many of the herilooms have cracks or blemishes - Rose de Berne, Ruby Gold, Mark Twain, Tiffin Mennonite. Hybrid tomatoes have done fabulously in the green house - many quite prime - Rebelski, Cosmonot Volkof, and Frederick.

Sun Peach Cherry Tomatoes: Better than Sun Gold? How could that be! Yes, as sweet with a slightly different tomato sweetness, and much less prone to splitting. Related to Sun Gold
