It may be surprising to learn that our love affair with this most essential summer vegetable (...botanically, a fruit) began in the mid 1800s. Filled with colorful pictures, Craig (who was fortunate to name the Cherokee Purple tomato in 1990) will take you through a bit of history, stories behind some of his favorite varieties, and the most important gardening tips to help everyone grow truly epic tomatoes in their own gardens. Be sure to bring all of your gardening questions.
Everyone will leave with a packet of tomato seeds. Craig will be selling copies of his books, Epic Tomatoes and Growing Vegetables in Strawbales (cash, credit, check OK).
