We take a tour of TomatoMania at Tapia Brothers Farm Stand in Encino, CA this week for a look at the most beautiful, coolest tomatoes to grow in 2020. It’s like choosing a favorite child, but you know you have one. Maybe these will enter your good graces in the coming season.
With the impending lockdown from Coronavirus, we hardly need to make our point anymore: gardening equals self-reliance. Grow tomatoes this season and eat well all summer long.
