Petite Inspirations

In the name of inspiration and all things interesting to me and hopefully you.


Every year the Fullerton Arboretum in Southern California has their annual VeggiePalooza. There were tons of varieties of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and other veggies for sale. We decided to get a few plants that aren’t available at stores as plants and produce to buy. Since our backyard isn’t ready to have a huge garden just yet, we limited our selection to just a few tomatoes and a couple of peppers.

Cherry tomato: Isis candy – I chose a cherry tomato for my sister and nephew who will hopefully be visiting this summer. I’ll have those tomatoes ready by then!

Debarao heirloom paste tomato – I asked the volunteer there for something that was good for salsas. She recommended any of the paste tomatoes.

Rutgers improved –  Another volunteer said this a good option too. It was in the ‘Slicer’ section of tomatoes.

Mr. Wonderful took care of the pepper plant selections. Both varieties he chose were hot. White habanero and pepperoncini.

I transplanted them as soon as we got home!
