This weekend is supposed to be a big weekend for planting and gardening, depending of course on the weather.
If you want to choose from about a hundred varieties of peppers and tomatoes and more, Eyewitness News is on your side with a unique place to find them.
Mickey Fadoir's greenhouse in New Hartford looks like most any greenhouse until you look a little more closely. He has so many varities of peppers and tomatoes that he cannot name them all including the dreaded Ghost Pepper.
"I warn them and I've got them tagged at four bucks apiece. And I warn them that over in India they use them for elephant repellant," Fadoir said. "I kid you not."
Everything at the Tomato Plants Etc. is homegrown and organic.
"I don't buy any of these from anybody," Fadoir said. "I do them all myself."
Fadoir said he gets his seeds from catalogs and grows some of his tomatoes "for the seeds."
"I started with over 70 varieties which is kind of insane," he said. "But I did it anyway."
The greenhouse also features garlic, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, Kalahari, spinach and kale.
