Tomatoes are a main stay in most home gardens and are one of the most productive vegetables per unit of space. For home gardeners, it is more about taste and flavor than total yield. In recent year’s weather and disease have made it more difficult to obtain a respectful yield of tasty tomatoes. The genetics of a tomato variety, the cultural practices used in growing the tomato and the soil they are grown in will all impact your success in having a wonderful crop of flavorful tomatoes. Master Gardener, Sandra Bierbrauer will provide you with helpful tips to having, healthy flavorful tomatoes. Sandra’s powerpoint presentation will provide insight into the required cultural practices, variety selection, fertilizer and soil nutrients, planting, pruning, staking, pest control, harvesting and more.
Fee: $5.00/person
