Spent the day driving through Lancaster County to visit some beautiful Amish farms, an urban community market and garden, and even found a stunning wildflower preserve. The photo above is a wonderful family run greenhouse operation on the banks of the Suquehanna river near Millersville, Pa. The Funk family sells hundreds of varieties of plants and vegetables, including 50 varieties of tomatoes, some of which are very unique heirloom varieties. Even though I have too many tomato plants started already, I couldn't resist buying Red Candy (a sweet grape tomato), Dr Wyche's Yellow, Garden Peach, and German Red Strawberry (an Oxheart variety). I'll just have to find room!
