Tomato Growing Guide

Tomatoes are my desert island plant. Were I forced to grow only one plant for the rest of my life, they’d be my choice. The evidence is clear as there are a lot of posts on this site that mention tomatoes. I’ve pulled out those with the best how-to information, but there are many more to be found in the archives.

My books You Grow Girl and Grow Great Grub: Organic Food from Small Spaces contain sections on growing, cooking, and preserving this delicious summertime favourite.
