One of the most popular plants grown in gardens is the tomato. There are many different ways to care for your tomato plants, and preserve your harvest throughout the year. The U of I Extension Office is offering a workshop on tomatoes, with information on caring for the plant, and creating a salsa to enjoy once they're harvested.


Andrew Holsinger, a Horticulture Educator at the U of I Extension Office is one of the co-presenters of the workshop, and says the workshop will offer solutions to some problems people may run into with their tomato gardens.



U of I Educator Lisa Peterson will also be helping with the workshop, and will teach those in the class how they can create a canned salsa with their tomatoes.



The Extension does ask that those interested sign up for the workshop ahead of time, which can be done through contacting the U of I Extension Office.
