Tomato Baby Company is devoted to growing the tomato and pepper seedlings that their customers want.

Substantial, quality plants are their goal and they will continue to grow them for you, as long as they get the quantity of orders they need to operate.
So, please pass their name on to your gardening friends and neighbors, hobbyists and commercial growers alike!

I have not yet received my plants, but I wanted to do a preliminary review anyway! The wonderful plants at Tomato Girl/Tomato Baby Company sell out rather quickly, and I want my giveaway winner to be able to choose something awesome before they are all gone! I will be posting another (more detailed) review when the tomato plants get to me (and into my garden)!
When I contacted Tomato Baby, I got a response quicker than I expected. I had the pleasure of speaking with Alainia (the owner) several times. She was very kind and so very helpful. By browsing her site, you can really tell how committed she is to her tomato babies. She made a few suggestions on how, what, and when to order. You can really tell that she is genuinely helpful and involved, not just trying to make a sale like a lot of other companies I have ordered from in the past.
The Tomato Baby website has SO many different varieties of tomatoes as well as several other veggies to choose from that it can be a bit overwhelming (especially for the beginner gardener.) Luckily, the site has an option to have the grower pick the plants for you. All you have to do is leave a detailed description of what it is you are looking for. For instance, when I ordered I put in the description box:
1 unique cherry tomato variety that will be great in salads.
1 variety that is perfect for cooking (stuffing)
1 variety that produces striped fruits.
1 variety that loves hot climates and is disease resistant.
1 variety that produces HUGE fruit.
1 variety that that has an early season.
1 variety that just sounds cool, and will make me proud when showing it to others!
(can be a mixture of each quality! Such as a large, striped tomato that is great for cooking, etc.) I typically only enjoy cherry tomatoes, so I am trying to focus more on those.
I tried to follow Alainia's suggestions:
How should a new customer pick plants? Pick at least one for:
I am super excited and cannot wait to see what she sends me!!
