Endorsements for Epic Tomatoes
"If you have questions about tomatoes, Craig has answers. From how to select what variety to grow, to how to plant, care for and harvest them. Beautiful photographs of tomatoes that readers will recognize, like the ubiquitous Brandywine to lesser known examples that come in a rainbow of colors made me want to try something different next year. Written in such a way, that I read the entire book in one sitting when I only intended to leaf through a few pages." - cayocosta72 Book Reviews
