Sick of winter? What I find helps, besides the occasional warmish, sunny day, is thinking about tomatoes. And that’s what we’re going to do today with Craig LeHoullier, author of the hit 2014 book “Epic Tomatoes,” who has over the years grown some 3,000 varieties in his home garden and adds new ones to his list every year
Craig, who gardens in North Carolina, is a retired chemist with a longtime passion for tomatoes. He’s the co-founder of the Dwarf Tomato Project, an advisor on tomatoes to Seed Savers Exchange, and the person who in 1990 named the popular heirloom Cherokee Purple from seed that had been passed down and eventually made its way to him.
