Looking for Heirloom Plants in Mass.

I am looking for somewhere to get heirloom tomato plants in MA, RI, etc. I will travel. I have plenty of chances for non heirloom.

Looking particularly for some GWR other than Green Zebra, which seem to be all over the place this year.

I am having finger movement problems(trigger finger syndrome) and gave up planting after screwing up a bunch of times.

So if you are aware of an opportunity, please let me know.
Thanks,
Tom

Try Araujo's Greenhouse in Rehoboth and Howland's in Fairhaven, both in SE MA. You might call ahead for their list.

I've been to Araujo's a number of times. Great place, had some heirlooms and I bought them. Reed's is OK also, just up the street. I'm going to look at Howland's today, I hope.
Thanks for the tips.

Sorry for the email asking what part of MA - didn't look at your zone to see south EAST MA, I was thinking possibly south WEST MA. Good luck.

sawmill farm rt 102 cov. r.i. would have been great, but by the time I called, he was out of the varieties I was interested in. A good place to keep in mind for a BIG variety of tomatoes and I think he said peppers too.
Happy Gardening,
Tom

Wish I read this sooner, dumped my extras a few weeks ago in the compost pile. I'm in Central Mass - Sudbury/Stow area.

Next year?? :)
