Tomatoes are a favorite choice for warm weather vegetable gardening. There is nothing more satisfying than a ripe, luscious, red tomato. They come in all sizes, colors, shapes, and tastes. With a huge number of varieties to choose from, tomatoes are one of the most popular plants grown for our culinary enjoyment.
The challenges of growing them are quite a different story. With challenges from soils and temperatures to diseases and insects, tomatoes are also one of the most difficult plants to grow.
Come hear an expert give us insight in how to grow bigger, better, healthier tomatoes. Craig Mauney is not only an experienced farmer, but is also an Agriculture Specialized Agent for Commercial Vegetables and Fruits.
