My friend, Vicky Tewes, owner of Thistlehair Farm in Union, KY, brought me up a plant this past spring (2016). I ended up planting it in a 10 gallon fabric pot and growing it in the greenhouse. Holy batman! It went 11 foot before I chopped it down.

 

The first time I tasted it, it knocked my socks off with true old-fashioned tomato flavor - good acid, yet mellow with just a hint of sugar. Meat is very dense, with few seeds and a small core. The kicker is that the fruits average well over a pound and they are prolific! This is not a plant for small spaces, by any means.


HISTORY: Julie Maruskin of Winchester, KY, first began listing 'Lena Mae Nolt's Holy Land' described as: Brilliant red perfect oxhearts, 12-18 oz., 20-30 pounds fruit per plant, on sprawling wispy-leaf vines. From Lena Mae Nolt, former owner of Homestead Garden Nursery in Casey Co. KY. Lena Mae received seeds from a customer ca. 1998, and is now a Homestead Garden best seller in spring.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
