Seeds 2021

At Sentimental Farm we are passionate about providing you with the opportunity to grow wholesome, chemical-free heirloom food.

All our seed comes from heirloom or open-pollinated vegetables grown here at the homestead. This is the food we eat.

While we do everything we can to avoid cross-pollination, it can happen in rare cases, so we can't 100% guarantee variety purity in your seeds. This is Mother Nature at work.

Heirloom varieties provide you with a much broader selection in colour, shape, size, texture and growing season. They also allow you to save your own seed from your personal favourites and trust that they will produce the same bountiful crop year after year. Unlike some hybrids, heirlooms are not grown for their ability to withstand shipping or chemicals, or for their uniform look at market. They are grown for taste.

All seeds are $3/packet. 25 seeds/pack unless stated otherwise.

Due to pandemic restrictions, seed sales are by pre-order only through our email: [email protected]

Order pick-up is by appointment only (contactless). Payment can be made by e-transfer prior to pick-up or cash (exact change please) at time of pick up.

Ground Cherry

Loewen Family: The very productive plants have sprawling growth and the tangy and sweet fruits are about ⅔" in diameter and encased in a papery husk. We found these to be slightly sweeter and smaller than Aunt Molly's. Allow the fruit to fall to the ground before harvesting. This ground cherry has been passed down through at least four generations of women; it was brought to Canada from Russia in 1925. 80 days from transplant.

Aunt Molly's: Also known as Cape Gooseberries. The plants and fruits resemble tomatillos, with each fruit growing inside a papery husk called a calyx. But fruits mature to a golden orange colour and drop to the ground when ripe. The sweet little fruits will store for up to three months if kept in their husks, but you’ll want to use them faster than that in jams, fruit salads, and sauces. Aunt Molly’s originated in Poland. (70 days from transplant).

Strong plants bear a heavy crop of 15 to 18 cm long tapered fruits that are 7-8 cm at the shoulder. It is the last pepper to ripen and we look forward to it for end of summer roasted pepper and caper salads. So worth the wait. 65 days green, 85 days red.

Indigo Rose: Indigo Rose has the most extraordinary, dark purple-skinned tomatoes currently available. The flavour of these tomatoes is clean and clear, reminiscent of plums, with a slightly acidic sweetness you'll only find in home-grown tomatoes. The so-called "saladette" style fruits average 50g (1.7 oz.). Plants are hardy and have good disease resistance. As the fruit matures the skin will become purple where exposed to light and the fruit tends to have a purple crown. This is caused by the antioxidant anthocyanin reacting to the sun. The fruits are ripe when their skin colour changes from a shiny blue-purple to a dull purple-brown. The fruit also softens similarly to regular tomatoes, and the bottom of the tomatoes will turn from green to red when ripe. Semi-indeterminate (compact vine). 75 days from transplant.
