Vegetable starts will be available at our plant stand at 3047 Keniris Rd throughout May, open from 10 am – 4 pm. We accept cash and etransfer to thimblehillnursery@gmail.com.

If you are sick, in quarantine, or have a compromised immune system, we can put together your order and provide contact-less delivery within the Nelson and North Shore Area.

All our starts are grown in our homemade compost-rich, peat-free living potting mix. We are not certified organic at this point, but grow as if we are – no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or fungicides are ever used.

Tomatoes

We’ve sold out of our first batch of tomatoes. Our second sowing of tomatoes will be available starting MAY 23, below are the varieties.

YELLOW Cherry – Saved seeds. These indeterminate tomatoes produce large quantities of sweet, crisp 1″ yellow cherry tomatoes that produce all summer. Support needed.

BLACK KRIM Slicer – Heirloom from Baker Creek Seeds. Delicious sweet juicy flavor, beautiful, great yield, tomatoes range in size but some are up to 1 1/2 pounds.” Deep purple/black fruits. Indeterminate.

SUPER ITALIAN PASTE – Heirloom from West Coast Seeds. “These premium Italian heirloom paste tomato seeds produce lots of reddish orange 6″ elongated fruits. Super Italian paste roma tomato seeds produce big (10 oz) firm tomatoes on a vine. Meaty flesh, with very little juice and few seeds, they are ideal for sauces and tomato paste and renowned the world over as a “Primo” paste tomato. Their sweet flavour imparts rich taste to your cooking but they are low in acid so add lemon juice to bring down the pH in foods to be canned. Because they are vines, they do not all ripen at once so plant several and stagger your sauce making. These fruits hold well after ripening. Vine (indeterminate), Matures 85-90 days.”

LONGKEEPER storage tomato – Heirloom Saved seed. My mother has been growing these 2-3″ late-season tomatoes for many years. They are harvested unripe in the fall, then they slowly ripen in storage over many months. We’re often still eating fresh sliced tomatoes mid-winter thanks to this variety.
