Knox Vegas Farms – Tomato Seedlings for Sale at Market Square Farmer’s Market

By day (and most nights) I'm a professional nerd. But come Spring, my green thumb begins to morph and take over my entire body and McPhelps Manor begins its scary seasonal transition to KNOX VEGAS FARMS!!!  For the fifth year running, Marcus and I, resident pretend farmers, give our house and yard over to Knox Vegas Farms and its surly crop of heirloom tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings.  This year we'll also have nine different kinds of basil.  If I get my act together, heirloom squash and okra seedling may be available as well.  If you'd like to grow the tastiest tomatoes you've ever grown and maybe meet the craziness behind TNLocavore, come join us May 1st at the Market Square Farmer's Market.  We'll be there from 9am-2pm waxing about all things tomato.  We'd love to meet you!
