ETA is January 21st. Sorry for the long wait. Also sorry that some orders late in the year got cancelled due to personal circumstances that proved insurmountable. Some of you got free seed as Tom tried to fill orders long after credit card authorizations expired. Hope that makes it up to you!
The good news is that while this site was down, I’ve created a new and improved site that supersedes our old shopping cart. Our old shopping cart had some problems, including a counter-intuitive user interface.
Our old system was an artifact of me having thrown the site together in a few days, reading instructions cook-book fashion, that I bought through a sale on internet sales how-to manuals (not a joke). This new system is, well, the result of the same kind of day-late-and-dollar-short process, but hey, I learn fast if nothing else. And I show up. That’s half the battle.
The new cart is an instance of the popular zen cart. It doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as Word Press, but it’s internet sales software, not blogging software. I think you’ll like the layout and features a lot better. Our website will finally look professional. You’ll be redirected automatically to the new site, and this old one will either be retired or scaled down.
In the mean time, I’m finishing up missing components, replacing other people’s advertisements (that’s the price you pay for free software…and I will keep some links to our sponsors somewhere on the page because that’s fair) and testing, and Tom is furiously packing seed.
MORE seed will show up in a few months, courtesy of one of Tom’s new partners. I haven’t asked permission to name him yet, but you might hear about him soon. Also thanks to our many friends and helpers who have supported, encouraged, and sometimes bailed us out. Love ya!
P.S.: Those Nightshade-looking things in the photo. Those are tomatoes. Verde Claro, to be precise. Believe it or not those are ripe. They ripen totally green, without even so much as an amber blush as most green-when-ripe tomatoes have. They’re firm as is common among Tom’s tomatoes, and one of his sweetest varieties.
