We've got eggs!!! Our pullets are really producing now so we still have an abundance of pullet eggs for $3/dozen. Many of the pullet eggs are large now too and qualify for our regular dozen eggs at $5. Our older chickens are producing really large, often double-yoked eggs which we sell in green quart containers - $3.00 for 7 eggs (a "half" baker's dozen). Come and get 'em😀

Need some more tomatoes, peppers or eggplants for your garden!!!! After filling the orders I have some plants still available for sale.

This year I decided to cut down on my growing of vegetable seedlings and took some orders before planting the seeds. I think most of you who purchased plants last year have already ordered but I wanted to let others know so they can look for other sources of tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. I will probably have a small number of plants left over after filling the orders so stay tuned for more information about that at the end of May. Happy Spring All:)))

Well it's that time of year again when I begin planting seeds for the garden. This year I have decided not to do a public Heirloom Tomato Sale because, quite honestly, it was too successful last year (over 750 plants sold) and I was exhausted from all the planting and transplanting that I did in preparation:) So I've decided to cut back on the quantity of plants I plant and only take orders in advance. That way, I won't end up with hundreds of plants that didn't sell; I find it really hard to "kill" my baby plants and so my garden was overrun with those tomatoes, peppers and eggplants last year.

If you are interested in ordering tomatoes, peppers, eggplant or tomatillos, please message me with your email address and I will reply with an attachment listing the plants/varieties. You can then respond back with your order. Plants will be $3/plant which includes a dose of fertilizer. Please contact me before March 15 since I will begin planting peppers and eggplant in the next couple of weeks.

Today was a great day!!!! We had a visit from the great granddaugher of the builder of our house (Jacob Littlefield, house 1843). She was here with her nephew and the wife of her son. She had never been in the house although she lives only about 45 minutes from here. Showed her and her relatives the house and the barn. Saying goodbye, we found out that in mid-July, Betty turns 100!!!! Amazing!!! Couldn't tell at all...what a woman. Loved it!!!!!!!

The 4th Annual Heirloom Tomato Plant Sale starts tomorrow at 1pm. Thanks to everyone who has already preordered. Some procedures for the sale to keep up all safe during this Covid19 pandemic.

Everyone should wear a mask and maintain reasonable social distancing. We will be outside and contact should be quick but we all want to remain vigilant.

I will be setting up tables under a tent by the road for pickup of preorders. You can park on the street (but please don't block the driveway;)) Please have your money ready to deposit in the box on the table, $3/plant cash or check made out to "Diana Lipari." Someone will be there to assist you should you wish to change or add to your order.

For those coming to the sale, please enter the circular driveway on the left and pull around to the end of the grass circle on the right. We will be taking one group at a time beginning with the first car in line. Again please bring multiples of $3 so we don't have to make change for your purchases. Or you can pay by check made out to "Diana Lipari."

We look forward to seeing everyone in the next few days. So pleased to offer you my lovingly raised plants:))))
