Tomato Plants, Anyone

Daniel and Tim are in the tomato business.
Cherry tomatoes.
$1 a plant.

Nothing like a bright red van to complement the tomato business.

I’m pretty sure this new endeavor will put at least one of the five children through college.

  1. So, do they split the proceeds 50/50? And what about all those helpers? Do they have to be paid? A whole plant for $1 sounds like a good deal. We’ll buy some if R or J brings any along?

  2. Heh. I bear all the risk and the cost, and Daniel provides some of the labor. It’s a great deal for one of us, although I think I am getting a lot more joy out of the actual growing of the plants than is Daniel.

    We figure the green pots cost us about $0.15 each, and the peat starter disks run about $0.10, if you factor in the cost of the seeds as well. Add about $.20 worth of dirt and let God grow the plant, and you’ve got a 6-inch tomato plant, ready to sell for a buck.

    Too bad we live on a cul-de-sac.

    I’ve been scouring the municipal code to see if we’re allowed to sell our plants on the right-of-way out on the main street — so far, I can’t tell for sure. We’re not allowed to block foot traffic, nor are we allowed to construct any kind of a semi-permanent stand on the right-of-way … but there is a great corner near our house that I’d like to try. Sometimes people leave their for-sale cars there …

    If Daniel and I are going to hit the big time with our plants, I guess I need to register a business license. Actually, I have one, but it is for software development. Not sure I can make it stretch to include tomato plant sales.

  3. I want a plant. Jerry says he’s only planting 4 tomato plants in the garden this year. I will believe it when I see it!!

    We had lots of tomatos last year- so very satisfactory. Good for you and Daniel, Tim.

    Love you, Aunt Kate

  4. I literally despise tomatoes, but those kids are about the cutest. I’d buy some. really, that means a lot coming from me. :)
