Beth Preheim is an experienced gardener. She currently gardens with a small space garden at the community gardens and has plant containers at home. She has suggestions for successful gardening, how she deals with garden pests, and when she begins and continues planting. See her interview at the link below.
Preheim liked the challenge of growing tomatillos for Mexican dishes. She found that having two plants for cross-pollination helped ensure the husks would fill. A fellow gardener gave her the tip.
Preheim grows her tomatoes from seed that she starts at home and then transplants at the community gardens. She tends to plant 4-6 week old tomatoes and has good results. Here are some tomatoes that yielded well from a young start.
