Synopsis:

"What great tomato-growing ideas! I've been 'container gardening' my Big Boys in old abandoned refrigerators in the front yard for years now, but next season, I'll take Mike's advice and trellis them up the side of our double-wide!"--Martha Slewart, Martha Slewart's Lying

"Did I write this book? So many of the jokes just seem so...familiar."--Garrison Keelover, A Prairie Home Tomato

"Aren't these things poisonous to eat?"--Thomas Jefferson, farmer and framer

"Forget basketball! I'm retiring again to grow heirloom tomatoes! Now, what kind of shoes am I gonna need . . . ?"--Michael Jardin, tall guy

"This is just the kind of 'hidden message' book I expect from you left-leaning, liberal-compost-applying, communal gardening, card-carrying organic types! Well, you don't fool me one bit-- enticing the youth of America to experiment with PINK tomatoes! RED fruits! Arkansas TRAVELER-- or is that Arkansas FELLOW TRAVELERS??? I'm sticking with my red, white, and blue potatoes!"--Rush ToJudgement, The Rush ToJudgement Show

From the Publisher: "What great tomato-growing ideas! I've been 'container gardening' in my Big Boys in old abandoned refrigeraters in the front yard for years now, but next season, I'll take Mike's advice and trellis them up the side of our double-wide!" --Martha Slewart, Martha Slewart's Lying

Mike McGrath's growing legion of fans loves his trademark wit -- evidenced on his nationally syndicated National Public Radio program "You Bet Your Garden" and in his monthly Organic Gardening column. In You Bet Your Tomatoes, McGrath doesn't disappoint, delivering both sound advice and plenty of laughs to help gardeners beat the heat and have a great tomato harvest.

Tomatoes are the most popular home garden vegetable crop. Based on McGrath's personal adventures in tomato-growing, You Bet Your Tomatoes guides would-be gardeners through choosing, planting, growing, and harvesting homegrown tomatoes of many varieties. Along the way, he weaves in fascinating tomato lore and tips. McGrath also explains why readers should grow their own tomatoes in the first place: You just can't beat the taste.

Mike McGrath is editor-at-large for Organic Gardening and is the former editor-in-chief. He writes a monthly column, "Mike McGrath's Tall Tales," and answers questions on the magazine's website. McGrath's "You Bet Your Garden" airs weekly on National Public Radio. He has made frequent guest appearances on NBC's Weekend Today and NPR's "All Things Considered".
