Topic: Tomatoes with Farmer Roy


Roy will give you his take on all aspects of tomato production from seedlings to harvest. You will get tips on varietal selection, soil preparation, fertilization, pest/disease control, and cultural practices. He will touch on heirlooms, cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, and, of course, those red vine-ripes. Also, you will learn how to graft your own tomato seedlings for increased vigor and production.


Roy Wilburn, Horticulture Manager at Sunshine Care in Poway is our speaker.

Roy was a commercial tomato grower in Baja, California for 20 years and now maintains the organic greens at Sunshine Care. There, he supplies 20,000 pounds a year of fresh, high quality fruits and vegetables for the residents' daily menus and families-in-need in the Poway area. Vine-ripe tomatoes are the star of the gardens.
