Heirloom vegetable varieties are prized by home gardeners for superior flavor, uniqueness, and other characteristics that are not always present in modern varieties. Instructor Chrys Gardener will share information on some of her favorite heirloom varieties, including where to source seeds and plants, tips on growing tomatoes from seed, managing diseases of heirloom tomato plants, and to how to save your own seeds for next year’s crop.
