I wasn't going to say anything but I knew this guy was a nut bag a few years back. I've had my fair share of confrontations with this person. I can't remember what it was about anymore but I knew he was a 2 face ★★★★★. Sorry to hear he screwed you over to. I came up with the name Tomato Geeks btw lol and he snagged it like the rest of his stolen ebook giveaways.

Sadly, his is not the only site that did - and do - illegal downloading of my book (and many others) - I get Google Alerts quite often with this or that one pirating my books - Storey (and all publishers) try to be on top of this, but it's like playing whack a mole. I just forward the alerts to my editor and she sends them on to the department that quashes this stuff.

Doesn't even really bother or surprise me any more....which in itself is probably sad.

Well I'm happy to announce that after 2 weeks my site is back up. When Jerry sent my files he sent the ones from the orignal building of the site, all the product I loaded was not sent back and had to be re-done. Oddly enough, when I was googling certain tomatoes I found my exact copy and photos on Jerry's site! I had sent him an email and told him to take down my photos but he just ignored it. I don't know what I can actually do about it. But the good news is you can now order!! http://secretseedcartel.com

Terry:

Just ordered a couple peppers and tomatoes from http://secretseedcartel.com.

I think I have enough seeds for the next couple of years, but I hate to see someone get taken advantage of!

Keep up the good fight!

Jeff

Never ceases to amaze me how stupid crooks can be. The idiot sells seeds, to small gardeners! Does he really think he can get away with being a dishonest crook for very long in such a small community?

Glad things are ending well for you Terry. I will give your site a look right now.

Hi Terry,

I'm shocked by what Jerry Harrell has done. I'm a big fan of your seeds and your site and will be growing several of your varieties this year.

Keep your chin up!

It's funny going through that website (tomatogeeks) and seeing all the reused images and word for word copied descriptions. Flagrant shamelessness.

Brings back memories of Penny's Tomatoes. That business is apparently gone with the wind.

Did this fella ever sell seeds? It appears he only sells plants and doesn't ship, pickup only.

That's a mighty professional looking website (with oodles of stolen photos and descriptions (even from Bonnie's)) for a local plant seller???
