The Garden Tomato
Nothing says summer like a fresh, ripe garden-grown tomato! Learn everything about growing these gorgeous celebrities: seeding and planting transplants, maintenance (trellising, irrigation, fertility, pruning), combating diseases and bugs, harvesting and storage, cleaning up at the end of the season, and, of course, differences between OP (open pollinated) and hybrid varieties. We will focus on the many flavorful heirloom varieties out there. During the second session we'll review the challenges and successes of growing over the summer months while troubleshooting problems. We'll even add in some recipes and ways to preserve the yield.
