It's that time of year again--TOMATOES!

Florida farmers produce more fresh tomatoes than any other state. Yet Florida home gardeners find it difficult to successfully grow tomatoes. By changing a few basic practices, home gardeners can increase their chances of success.

Larry Williams, UF/IFAS Residential Horticulture Extension Agent in Okaloosa County, will provide a presentation titled Tips on Growing Tasty Tomatoes on Thursday, March 7. This hour-long presentation begins at 10 a.m. and will be held at the Gerald R. Edmondson Extension Building located at 3098 Airport Road in Crestview.

If you are interested in learning how to be more successful in growing tomatoes in the home garden, plan to attend. There is no cost to attend but space is limited. Please call the UF/IFAS Okaloosa County Extension Office at 850-689-5850 to register.
