Come learn the basics about the heirloom tomato (planting times and varieties most suitable for Houston) and learn hands-on techniques for planting and trellising this popular garden fruit. Lastly, walk away with a few of La Finca’s farm grown heirloom transplants to get your home garden up and running for the spring!
