February is the time to start thinking about growing tomatoes and peppers.  Almost all gardeners dream about that first vine ripe tomato of the summer.  What grows well with tomatoes? Can a companion plant be planted to naturally keep bugs away? What are the tricks to not getting cracks in your heirloom tomatoes?

Don't think you have the space to grow tomatoes? Nonsense. We'll show you how to please both you and your tomatoes, whether it's in a pot on the patio or dangling from railing. There's always room for tomatoes.

You did it! You grew your best tomatoes ever and now you need to get them into the house and save some seed to start it all over again next year. Don't worry, the hard part is over. Harvesting and saving seed are the pay-off. Take home a tomato plant to get your gardening season started.

For further information or to pre-register, please contact the Extension office. The fee for this workshop is $10 per person and pre-registration is required by February 1, 2017. Space is limited. 


Cost: $10 (per person)
