In a previous post I advised against growing tomatoes from seeds because tomato seedlings would be plentiful during several plant sales around Chicago this spring. If you're interested in growing heirloom tomatoes and followed my advice, you can buy heirloom tomato seedlings and plants at Provenance Food & Wine and Lush Wine & Spirits. These tomatoes are part of Chicago TomatoFest's heirloom tomato grow along. Chicago TomatoFest's heirloom tomatoes will be on sale at these locations while supplies last. Provenance Food & Wine posted on Facebook today that they only have a few tomato plants left. The tomatoes at Lush are only available at their West Town location. The tomato plants are cash only and the money goes to Slow Food Chicago & the preSERVE garden in the North Lawndale neighborhood.
A couple more plant sales in late May and early June which you can find information for here.
