Ever wondered how to get flavoursome, juicy sweet tomatoes in abundance?
This class goes through the basics: choosing varieties for different purposes, growing from seed or seedling, soil preparation for the garden or in pots, watering, fertilising and then finally the eating, with some fabulous ideas on how to cope with the quantities you are bound to get! We do some seed-raising as part of the class.
We start the evening with a bowl of pasta made with home preserved tomato sauce. Yummm!
