COMMON GOOD FARM 2020 VARIETAL INFORMATION
Tomatoes --- Peppers -- Eggplants
COMMON GOOD FARM 2020 CERTIFIED ORGANIC PLANT SALE ...just starting to update this mid-April! CHECK BACK!
OPEN NOW! Sale opened April 18, 2020 :: We've started updating varietals!
VARIETAL INFORMATION for peppers, tomatoes, eggplant from ANTICIPATED varieties; some may not be available until mid-May; some are limited quantity. Just tomato/pepper/eggplant varieties are listed here because there are so many & often folks have a specific interest, but we also have flowers, herbs, cabbage, broccoli, chard, kale, collards, lettuces, melons, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, melons...and more! We try & update the list based on plantings and varietal selections for the year! This list is the most complete at the time!
No neo-nics! Certified organic and certified Biodynamic!
PRO-TIP #1: Not all heirlooms tomatoes are funky looking! Don't miss out, slicers and pastes can be heirlooms too!
PRO-TIP #2: DETERMINATE (bush) types of tomatoes fruit earlier (mid-late July, sometimes earlier!) and are usually about 3-4' tall & benefit from a small cage or staking. They fruit heavily for a period of time & then slow down or stop altogether. INDETERMINATE (vining) tomatoes are the classic tall tomatoes that need more support & begin to fruit later (about the time determinates stop/slow down), but will typically continue until frost. SEMI-DETERMINATES won't get quite as tall & fruit somewhat earlier than the late season tomatoes. IF you have room, put in both!
We focus on open-pollinated, HEIRLOOM varieties from organic non-gmo seed. All are grown from seed on the farm…certified organic & certified Biodynamic. More info about the farm at www.commongoodfarm.com

annual organic plant sale
APRIL 30, 2020 UPDATE: Sunday Farmers Market is delaying opening until June 7th at least. Our on-farm plant sale is the best place we can serve folks with the broad selection of plants! We've spread out the sale more this year & it is in a large hoophouse (rain or shine, wind/no wind!) & the full selection is at the farm. We MAY do a pop-up in Lincoln when vegetables are ready in the field. WE can pack an order for you; requesting a $5 pack fee. No order form (yet?)...contact us to get rolling on an order. We're a bit swamped...planting as fast as we can, & a bit short-handed without extra help, to be cautious as we can for our family & farm. Thanks for your patience! We're also adding an item in our on-line cart for MISCELLANEOUS PLANT QUANTITY TO PAY ON-LINE!
We love growing our healthy certified organic vegetable & herb plants for fellow gardeners! Folks come from near & far for their new-er favorites they have discovered through us. Plants are also available at our booth at Sunday Farmers Market in College View & early season they are also at Open Harvest in Lincoln. The largest selection is at the farm, but we try & provide a nice selection at market as well.
2020 ANNUAL ORGANIC PLANT SALE IS OPEN. Sale opened April 18, 2020. Check back for updates & additional info!

All grown from seed right here, using our own compost for our greenhouse potting/grow mix for a solid foundation to get things started!
