Just ordered from her "twenty heirloom tomato varieties for $9.99" offer. She lets you pick the twenty varieties out of about one hundred. There are all colors, shapes and sizes to choose from, including a nice collection of Kentucky heirlooms that aren't found at many of the other seed companies. Of course, there are also several popular varieties.
Received the seeds within a week. Most of my packets had between 14-16 seeds, with one having 26. Very generous for the price and perfect for trying out different tomatoes without breaking the bank.
I can't comment on the germination yet, but do plan to come back for that. Having heard positive reviews about her seeds from several other people, I'm not too worried.

I ordered from her the last two years. The service is prompt, good quality seeds and very reasonable prices and shipping. This last order came with in a week of being made. Though, it is the busy season. I will definately buy from here next year and recommend it to others.
Maria is a dear friend of mine and she is a dedicated grower of open pollinated tomato varieties and wants to share her passion for growing and saving many of these rare varieties you may not find elsewhere. Be assured that growing her tomatoes you can save seed if you bag and/or isolate them to prevent cross pollination. She is a great believer in growing her plants in composted soil and the tomatoes thrive on it with the care she provides. I am so glad that there are small growers that want to keep rare OP varieties going.
Wishing you a bountiful harvest of wonderful tomatoes!
