Tomato Talk at the SLT Library...

The Friends of the Library hosted a surprisingly interesting program on everyone's favorite vegetable/fruit... The Tomato.

Yes! The one vegetable (actually a fruit) that everyone wants to grow, but is that problem child here in Tahoe.  Learn the techniques required to grow these plants in our cool summers. Topics include proper varietal selection, location in the garden or container, planting options and methods for protecting the young plants and fruit.  Join UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe for a free workshop to learn how food can be grown at the Lake.  Participants receive instruction on cultivation techniques, and history/background on the plants being highlighted. Everyone will leave with free plants for their gardens. 
Dave Long shared his passion for gardening with a standing-room only crowd. He also shared tips for the ultimate harvest during Tahoe's 95 day growing season.
While I will never have a green thumb, I thoroughly enjoyed this evening of learning something new.
"Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad."
