Product Description

Product Description

Tomatoes are one of the most popular crops for the home grower and this book is an in-depth guide teaching you everything you need to know about growing this delicious fruit at home. When you grow your own tomatoes you will suddenly realize there are hundreds of different varieties, far more than you see in the shops, and many different colours, including black, white and even multi-colored!

Imagine making a home-made salad with a rainbow of different colored tomatoes in it? Just how good would that taste?

Home grown tomatoes taste so much better than those you buy in the shops. Being able to pick them fresh from the vine means they are so much tastier. You will be really surprised how delicious they taste.

Growing your own tomatoes is not hard, these plants grow like crazy, but with the right techniques and nurturing you can have an abundant crop of tomatoes that you can use fresh throughout the season. There really is nothing quite like being able to pick fresh produce from your garden to serve at the table; the taste is divine.

In this book you will learn how to :

  • Select the best seeds and seedlings

  • Nurture your plants so they produce an abundant crop

  • Prevent pests and diseases

  • Avoid the common mistakes people make with tomato plants

  • Store and preserve your tomatoes for later in the season

  • Cook delicious meals from your home-grown tomatoes

And much, much more.

This in-depth guide will teach you everything you need to know about tomatoes and successfully growing them at home. These are one of the best and most enjoyable crops to grow that can be grown in virtually any space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Tomatoes…Who Knew! 5 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Ok…maybe some people knew about black tomatoes, but i certainly didn't. However I'm no expert. But what I am now is a lot better informed on the topic of growing them. I am new to growing tomatoes, so i was looking for a book that was going to be simple for me to get to grips with the topic. Really liked this book. It explaind everything I needed and more. From the many varieties, the types of soil to grow them in, ph levels, the best seeds, and much more. Maybe some experts would prefer something with more scientific terms, but for me this book gave me everything i needed, and I'm sure it will do the same for many others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorted Out My Tomato Mistakes 30 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have grown vegetables and fruit for 30 years with a good degree of success. The main exception has always been tomatoes. Mine split and never give good yields. Within reading half of this book the author had shown me what I was doing wrong. I can't wait to see what happens with this year's crop. The book is a simple and yet thorough guide to growing your own tomatoes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future of Medicine! 7 Jun 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found this book just in time. I have been interested in starting a vegetable garden for some time now. I choose to start with tomatoes, because they are truly a superfood. I feel this is the future with all the corruption going on in this country with our food system. From pesticides to GMO's (tomatoes being one of the worst), to all sorts of diseases, young and old, it's getting very scary. My grandparents lived well into their 90's and I still feel it was because of the beautiful garden that they grew and ate from. They must of been onto something. Great guide!

I've always wanted to start a garden in my yard, but I never got around to it until this book finally sparked me into action. Now that I know all about growing tomatoes, I can save a lot of money on my grocery bill, considering how many of them I buy each year. Whether you love gardening or just want to save some money by growing your own tomatoes, I would recommend this book to you.
