June 5th, 2018

We have an abundance of tomatoes – more than I can use.  My friends are drawing their drapes and locking their doors when they see me get out of the car with a case of tomatoes.  We have too many.  Call me on my cell at 702-472-3258 and let me know what time you are coming over, so I don’t pick that time to go shopping.

June 16th.  We have sold all the tomato plants but have some peppers and chili plants for sale. Also some nice fruit trees and other plants that you see growing around the test garden.

    Garlic 9 and one half ouncesGarlic for sale

June 16, 2018.  We have sold out all of our planting garlic and only have small cooking garlic to sell.  It went fast this year.  I bought my original garlic years ago from Big John’s Garden.  I was very happy with the garlIc Big John sent me.   Click on his name and it will open a link to his website.

June 5th, 2018.   The garlic is mostly cured and I am cutting off the leaves and roots and cleaning the bulbs for storage.  We don’t have a lot left to sell, but you can judge for yourself, when you come over for tomatoes, if the size is up to your standards.  The garlic is delicious.

May 17, 2018.  Only a few people have experienced the flavor and joy of eating fresh garlic – garlic that was eaten within days of being harvested.  For the next few days you can buy Inchellium Red fresh garlic from me for $12 a pound (there is A LOT of garlic in a pound).  After a couple of days it will be partially cured and not fresh any more.  After a couple of weeks it will be cured but still better than the OLD garlic you buy in the supermarket that probably comes from China or ? ? ? ?  Enjoy fresh garlic roasted in a solar oven (like mine) by spreading it on a lightly toasted slice of French bread or sliced paper thin on your favor pizza or in you spaghetti sauce.  Oh my goodness, this is as close to culinary heaven as you can get – and so easy to prepare.    I also have about 25 Hawaiian Tropic tomato plants in 4″ pots that I will sell for $3/each.  I am finished planting and it is time for some short trips in my RV and time to find new homes for the plants in pots.



It is now possible to stay at The Sweet Tomato Test Garden as a guest in either my Guesthouse or my large Efficiency Apartment (Mother-in-Law quarters).  Both have a private entrance and keypad door lock so you can come and go without disturbing me.  Both have a private bathroom, microwave, fridge, queen size bed with fabulous mattresses and I can bring in a twin bed for a 3rd adult or your child.  Think of The Sweet Tomato Test Garden as a place to stay instead of an expensive hotel on your next visit to Las Vegas.  I am off the strip but short Uber/Lyft ride away.  Contact me by phone or text to 702-472-3258 for information and/or to book your reservation.

Please don’t  forget to start a few veggie seeds weekly for your garden.   Remember that the Transplanting Guide in the back of my book is talking about when to transplant veggie plants outside and not starting the seeds; the seeds are started 6-8 weeks before transplanting and are started indoors and grown under grow lights.  You can do this.  Children do it, it’s not difficult.
