HELP!!! Nighshades needed.

NadejRIMay 24, 2013

Hello folks! I wonder if anybody can help me out here. This year our nightshade transplants took a huge hit from the indoor thrips and just withered away. We ended up composting 95% of seedlings, which is pretty heartbreaking. It is the transplanting season and IâÂÂve got hardly any transplants. The reason I am writing here and not buying stuff from the farmersâ markets is because we typically grow certain things and I havenâÂÂt seen them at the most recent plant sales. So if you have excess of interesting nightshades and you live in Rhode Island, Southern Mass or parts of CT that are somewhat close to RI, I will be ecstatic to take them off your hands for $. HereâÂÂs what IâÂÂm looking for:
1. Healthy, green thriving plants, preferably at the stage when they are getting large so fast that they are begging to be put into the ground.
2. Varieties that do well in New England.
3. Preferably hardened off plants.
With Tomatoes, only our black tomatoes died, so if you have any black toms (Black Sea, Black Krim, Black Prince, Purple Calabash etc.) we definitely need those.
Eggplants: light thin skinned ones are great (Round Mauve, Prosperosa, Fairy Tale or whatevs)
Peppers: Big Bertha, Sweet Planet, Rainbow etc.
Whatever interesting/tasty stuff you have that you know for a fact does well in our New England weather, tried and true, I am interested and would be so happy to take them off your hands. Looking for about 15 toms, 15 peppers and 30 eggplants.
Thanks!
