Friends, Kayla and I are excited to host a tomato gardening class at Four String Farm this Saturday, March 18, from 9:00am to noon.
This interactive hands-on workshop will teach you everything you need to know to grow delicious, healthy, prolific tomatoes. On our farm, we grow thousands of pounds of tomatoes each season. We will show you the techniques we have developed over the years to get the most sweet and flavorful tomatoes with the least amount of work.
Everything You Need to Know to Grow Wonderful Tomatoes!
We will cover soil health, how and when to plant, tomato varieties, companion planting, how to trellis, irrigation, fertilizing, mulching, pest control, tomatoes in pots, and more. This will be a hands-on class. You will actually plant tomatoes in bare dirt to demonstrate the techniques, and we will answer all your questions in the process.
The average tomato plant yields about five to 20 pounds of tomatoes during the season and often gets ravaged by pests and then shuts down in June. We will show you how to get 50 lbs or more from the tomato plants in your garden throughout the summer!
We Will Have Some Helpful Materials on Site, if You Need Them
Some materials, such as a sturdy trellises, can be difficult for a backyard gardener to find in small quantities. We will have these materials available for you. If you like, we can cut small sections of trellis for you, so you can take home only as much as you need at very little cost.
We will have our favorite varieties of tomato six-packs and 4” plants (along with appropriate companion plants) on hand if you would like them. We will also recommend the stores and other resources in our area where you can find these items.
The cost of this workshop is $20 per person. You must register and pay in advance for this class.
