So you'd like to grow your own tomatoes?! Tomatoes are one of the most popular crops for home gardeners but they can also be quite challenging to grow, especially in our climate. We've compiled an introduction to growing tomatoes for you to check out before you go shopping for plants, because there are lots of varieties to choose from and each one has different pros and cons based on your experience level, amount of space, and taste. Read our "Introduction to Growing Tomatoes" guide. 

This time of year our tomato selection is slowly dwindling because its getting to be a bit late to start a new tomato plant. When planting long term crops its helpful to think about not just the weather when you are planting, but the weather when the plant will finally be ready to harvest. Tomatoes planted in February will start making you fruit in April, which is almost the end of our growing season. That being said theres no harm in adding a late season tomato to your bed to see what happens. We will stop selling tomatoes in March, so don't wait too long if you want to give it a try this season.
