Garden Workshop - TomatoFEST!

$75.00 Join us!

Tomato Fest! It may be the dog days of summer, but they bring us tomatoes! Come help harvest our variety of tomatoes, from cherry, to heirloom, to paste. We will focus on tomatoes and their friends: peppers, eggplant, and basil. What is the best way to stake tomatoes in your garden? How can you maximize your basil yield? What kind of eggplant and peppers should you grow in your garden?   

Taste the difference, and learn how, when, and why to use different tomatoes for different purposes in the kitchen. Ian and Shelly will walk you through the differences between a slicing tomato and a paste tomato, and teach you how to make the perfect sauce. 

This workshop ends in lunch!
