It’s a short book on best practices for growing tomatoes organically in your garden or containers. I also wanted Homegrown Tomatoes to be a reference for new and experienced gardeners, so I included indexes for the most common diseases and pests of tomatoes. I researched this information extensively, via the extension offices of Michigan State University, Cornell University, and others.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly about Growing Tomatoes
“If you don’t know about tomatoes, this book is a good place to start. The author is obviously a maniac, gardening before winter is over and delighting in every garden pest, but his writing is clear and his pictures will inspire you to go out and buy tomato seeds. That’s what I did.”

My aim was to make this organic gardening book a cut (or 2) above many of the gardening Ebooks on growing tomatoes I’ve encountered online. So I hired an editor, recently retired from the publishing industry, and an expert at formatting Ebooks, because I wanted it to display beautifully on Kindle, Nook, iPad, or any mobile reader.

I also included images of tomatoes that I’ve grown in my garden over the past 4 years, like this image of tomato blossoms.

Homegrown Tomatoes will help you learn:

  • the basics on soil and compost
  • how to get your organic garden bed or containers ready for planting
  • how to start tomato seeds indoors
  • how to plant your seedlings for deeper rooting and protection from wind and weather
  • how to feed your tomatoes organically for maximum size
  • how to prune your tomatoes to produce larger fruit
  • the different ways of supporting your tomatoes
  • how to get your tomato plants through a heat wave
  • how to use companion plants to fight tomato pests
  • the different ways to preserve your tomato harvest
  • includes indexes on the most common insect pests and diseases and how to treat them organically

Easy read, worth the money
“Great book. Easy to read. Goes into great detail about growing tomatoes. I’ve been gardening for 30 years and learned a lot from this book.”

I hope you enjoy Homegrown Tomatoes, and find it useful. I can guarantee that if you follow the advice in this book, your tomatoes will grow like they’re on steroids – organic steroids, of course.

If you decide to purchase the book, I’d really appreciate a review on Amazon. Thanks in advance for that.
