The most sought after vegetable for home gardeners. Is the perfect tomato out of your grasp? Do you long for that sweet, juicy firm bite of tanginess and just can't make it happen in your garden?

You will learn how to select which are best for you to try if you are a beginner and which might be best left to the more advanced tomato grower. We will cover starting seeds v. transplants, growing challenges, pests and diseases and how to overcome them and options for organic care of your prize vegetable.
We will conclude class with a demonstration of starting tomato seeds and each student will go home seeds to begin your plants at home to be ready in time to plant this season.
