We kick off Season 12 with an encore episode of a fan favorite, Epic Tomatoes with Craig LeHoullier. This episode was of course inspired by Craig’s book Epic Tomatoes: How to Select and Grow the Best Varieties of All Time.
If you love learning about the story behind heirloom tomatoes as much as you love growing them, that is a must-read book and this is a must-watch episode.
Since filming this episode, Craig has left his driveway garden at his previous home, and moved to a different location in Hendersonville, North Carolina. There he grows tomatoes in a yard in straw bales. He’s had much to share about experimenting in his new garden there. If you’re interested, he shares all the details in this podcast episode when Joe interviewed him last fall.
Growing Epic Tomatoes
Early in 2021, Craig and Joe joined forces to provide even more tomato-growing knowledge when they co-created and co-taught a brand new online course called Growing Epic Tomatoes.
For more details on this episode, you can read the show notes from the original airing of this episode.
