About The Event
Mortgage Lifter. Pineapple. Matt's Wild. Bloody Butcher. Green Zebra. The list of amazing tomato varieties goes on and on and on, proving that the tomato is one of the most popular, and for some, challenging fruits to grow. And maybe that's exactly why we love to grow tomatoes- the long wait for the heat of summer, the sweet thrill of success, and the joy of finally biting into a luscious, ripe love apple as the juices run down our chins! If you LOVE tomatoes, this workshop is for you! Having been a pro tomato grower for Hotchkiss Organic Produce, I can provide you with some expert growing tips and tried-and-true tactics to maximize your tomato-growing (and tasting!) experience, AND I'll share with you my list of favorite short-season varieties and reliable producers. I want you to come away with the confidence that you absolutely CAN grow the most awesome tomatoes in our northern climate, even WITHOUT a greenhouse! Totally tomato-licious!
