Tomatoes for Time

This blog entry is intended only for people living in the Greater Salt Lake City (Wasatch Front) area.

Love heirloom tomatoes? I’ve got LOTS of ’em, of hundreds of the best varieties from around the world.

I’m beyond overwhelmed, trying to get tomatoes to market and seeds saved for next year. I simply don’t have enough time or energy to keep up.

These tomatoes sell for $3-5 per pound, but you can get them “FREE” in trade:

Here’s the deal:
One hour of your time helping me pick, etc. in exchange for 10 lbs. of tomatoes.  Two hours = 20 lbs., etc. I’m not a slave driver, but I need some dedicated, focused time, adults only. This is a great opportunity if you’re short on funds but have a couple of hours to devote to a good cause.

The tomato patch is on property leased from Salt Lake County (part of the Urban Farming Program), located at 3150 S. 1100 W., right next to the entrance to the Oxbow County Jail. Please don’t just show up, however. I’ve got 4 different places I work, deliveries to make, and lots going on.

Here is my schedule over the next few days when I plan to be working on this huge project at the Oxbow Plot:
Friday, September 13th, 1:00-5:30 p.m.
Saturday, 14th, 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Monday, 15th, 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, 16th, 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Please call or text me (Dale) at 801-651-5953, or email – note that you probably won’t get a response until late evening, as I don’t have Internet access on my cell phone. Please let me know in advance when you are coming. I have harvesting supplies, but it would be very helpful if you brought your own boxes/bags/buckets.

Thanks, and hopefully you’ll discover some new favorite varieties over the next few weeks!
