Here is our spring 2011 tomato plant list. As of 03/28/2011 there are 110 varieties to choose from.

After our downsizing in 2009 the HUGE tomato & pepper selection was a part of Funke's "return" to the market. 2010 was our market test year to determine whether future operations are economicly viable given the "fair weather" shopping habits of today's garden consumers. Our mission has always been and continues to be to teach an understanding of, and reconnection with Nature to an urban/suburban population desperately in need of it, funded by the sale of garden plants and supplies. Response to the overwhelming variety of vegetable plants in 2010 was very positive. With the continued support from gardeners such as yourself who appreciate the diversity that we bring to the market we will continue to be here each spring with the great plants, great service, great prices, and real value our customers have come to expect from Funke's.

If you'd like to learn a simple technique where Nature will virtually grow your garden for you check out Easy gardens with Al Funke on our youtube channel at youtube.com/FunkesGreenhouses
