Scott Daigre is the founder of Tomatomania. The tomato extravaganza is back and bigger than ever, so this year and he suggests a few tomato strategies that will prevent the home gardener from being overwhelmed. If you know what you want from your tomato plants you can plan ahead. He recommends:
For abundance and flavor
For the perfect BLT
any tomatoes in the black tomato family
For canning and roasting
Amish Paste (beware production may lag)
To win a beauty contest
Tomatomania events began last week in Corona del Mar and will continue throughout March in Southern California. The biggest event is in Encino March 23, 24 and 25.
