It is almost time for Tomatomania again. This yearly event with both California and New England locations kicks off the growing season with tomato seedlings in hundreds of varieties, from heirloom to modern hybrids.

We are lucky in that one of the major locations is within a mile of our house and garden, so it is always easy to check out “the mania” and see what is new and cool this year.


Here is a video with Tomatomania founder, Scott Daigre, from 2008. I am going to try and get a new video with him during this year’s event, so what AGN for more updates.
