The tomato man and gardening!
Craig LeHoullier, North Carolina Tomato man!
Micheal Kline “Reality Check” Audio player below!
This week we have a real treat. This Friday I have Craig LeHoullier The Tomato Man on as my guest. You may have heard of him as the North Carolina Tomatoman. Some know him as the fellow who named the Cherokee Purple in 1990. To others, he is the author of the books Epic Tomatoes or Growing Vegetables in Straw Bales, the co-host of Tomatopalooza, a co-leader of the Dwarf Tomato Breeding Project, or just the odd person with a garden where the driveway used to be. He is the tomato nut with a website, a blog, a newsletter (on occasion), and a huge tomato and pepper and eggplant collection.

Craig has been gardening since 1981 and loves to share, teach, and coach people on how to garden. He strives to share the joy that he experiences while gardening with his readers. Though gardening can be a solitary hobby, Craig finds that energy comes from being with and in front of other gardeners (anywhere along the experience spectrum, newbie to avid). It becomes all about collective sharing, learning, and growth. There is always something new to learn about gardening. The education process spans our lifetimes. The essence of what he does, and why he does it, is and will always be focused on learning and sharing, never about publicity and money.
If all goes well, in addition to growing gardens, we will grow new gardeners. Being able to grow wonderful flowers, vegetables and fruit offers so much: confidence and control of what we eat, the multitude of benefits from being outdoors and working up a sweat, and creating an area to decompress, relax and share with family and friends.
