Get ready to grow tasty and nutritious tomatoes, peppers and other heat-loving crops! Fresh tomatoes and peppers are some of the most delicious vegetables, but they can be tricky to grow in our cool summers. This in-person class will teach you how to get a successful harvest from these warm weather crops.
In this class you will learn about:
