It's Tomatomania!



    SPRING SEEDS: You know warmer temps are sneaking up when you get word that Tomatomania! is due, complete with excited exclamation point. What is Tomatomania!, you ask? You can guess it involves a certain chubby fruit that goes well in salsas and atop burgers. You can guess it'll be outrageous, thanks to "mania" being on the back of the word. But did you know it is "the world's largest tomato seedling sale"? That's where the exclamation point comes in, friends. And how.

    DATES/INFO: Tomatomania! is making several Golden State stops starting in March. Stop #1 will be the San Diego Botanic Garden on March 19-20. The furthest north of the SoCal-ish stops will be Ojai. Find your perfect tomato-y to-do, and then find that perfect plot in your backyard to match.
