They can finally take a break come late June, as they do not sell produce, only plants. Until then, they'll are busy selling a wide selection of potted vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Tomatoes are their most popular item, and with about half of their sales coming from these plants, it is no wonder that customers have been known to identify them as the "Tomato People."
The Daily Page: What is your secret to growing great tomato plants?
Mary Domann: We grow many of our tomato plants in milk jugs, which my husband has drilled holes into. Besides the fact that we are using recycled materials, the milk jugs make the plants easier to carry and less likely to be damaged during transport.
When you decided to start selling plants, how did you go about it?
We started small and grew a room at a time, a year at a time. We now have over 4,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space.
With such a busy schedule, do you have help growing your plants?
My husband and I do all of the planting, watering, and care of the plants ourselves. We also get help from our daughters, especially when selling plants on Saturdays.
