Grow Your Best Tomatoes

125 N Broadnax St # 23, dadeville, AL 36853

Tomatoes are the most popular vegetable for homeowners to grow, but they are also the most problematic. Due to the popularity of tomatoes and the issues that can arise, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System will conduct a tomato workshop – Grow Your Best Tomatoes. This hands-on workshop will be held in Dadeville, Alabama at the Red Ridge Methodist Church, 8091 Co Rd 34 in Tallapoosa County. Mark your calendars now and plan for this great opportunity to learn more about tomatoes and summertime problems.

The Grow Your Best Tomatoes program will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and conclude at 12:00 p.m. This program will feature tips on growing healthy tomatoes, a taste testing of tomato varieties, information to help you select the right varieties for their uses, and a hands-on disease/insect diagnosis/problem solving session. Participants will gain tons of knowledge to help you become more successful in growing your own tomatoes.

Those attending are encouraged to bring fresh samples of an insect, disease or other problem found on your tomatoes and 3 to 6 tomatoes of a named variety for entry in the tomato tasting
