The focus and content of the program

LeHoullier will spend the first half of Webburn talking about tomatoes and what attendees need to plan their own successful tomato production. Then there is a break for questions, followed by tomatoes growing from seed to harvest, including various ways to grow a tomato crop, such as in traditional gardens, high beds, containers or straw mates. He shares some popular tomato recipes.

Richard’s Craig’s Epic Tomatoes is popular with many of our Travis County gardeners. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the live webcast and receive answers when the time allows, and receive unanswered questions via email.

The webinar will also coincide with the book “Drought to Flood: Flexible Central Texas Garden”, which can be purchased online from the Travis County Master Gardeners Association. Richards spoke on the principles of Axiscaping from Drought to Flood and the Agency’s 2021 Education Center.

“Other programs in the series include soil, irrigation, lawning, and horticulture,” says Richard. “Then, at the end of September, we will have the last garden weed for Webnar. These programs were presented by experts from Lidi Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Texas A&M Agrillif and Travis County Master Gardeners, and Mr. Leholeli.
