April 14th Plant Sale will Have Late Blight Resistant Tomatoes
March 11, 2012
I just learned that the San Mateo/San Francisco Master Gardeners will offer three late blight resistant tomato varieties at their spring tomato and pepper plant sale on Saturday April 14th, 9:00am-1:00pm, rain or shine.
The sale will be held at the Elks Lodge, 229 West 20th Avenue, San Mateo. They will have 'Defiant PhR', 'Mountain Magic', and 'Golden Sweet' and will also have lots of other tomato and pepper varieties, starts of popular herbs, and gently used gardening books.Go early for the best selection of blight resistant tomatoes.
I know if you live in SF, it's a slog. If you don't ordinarily drive, it may be worth carpooling down or renting a carshare for a chance at some tomatoes that stand a chance against late blight.Parking for the sale is free.
For more information about the sale, call 650-726-9059 Ext. 107, Mon & Thurs, 9:30am-4:30pm or go towww.ucanr.org/sites/MGsSMSF/Special_events/Tomato_Sale.
