At Tree and Twig, my specialty and passion is heirloom vegetables. Heirloom tomatoes are what I do in a very big way. I look forward to meeting you and talking tomatoes! 


Growing heirlooms is an exciting way to try new and unusual tastes, shapes and colours. But more than that it is an effort to maintain the genetic diversity of our food crops.

In the last century, we have lost 90 per cent of our vegetable varieties — a tragic loss of diversity and a threat to our food security. It is important to stop this trend and, as growers and consumers, look for alternatives.

Heirlooms are the link to the past and are the key to our future. 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.

Eat in the past!

In 2019 it is all about the seedlings. I will no longer be selling my seed, but I remain an avid seed saver and will offer my seed through various exchanges.  My sale on the long weekend in May (18,19, 20 and on) is as big and interesting as ever with a gazillion varieties of tomatoes and other assorted veggie plants, herbs and flowers. Local seed will be available for purchase at my sale.

My CSA is entering it's 22nd year, but on a much smaller scale. 

New is my "Job's Tears" jewellery, which you can purchase directly from me (see pics on the Brindille Jewellery facebook page) or through my Etsy store, Brindille_Jewellery
