Hi Cynthia, I have used your tomatoe growing formula for several years while still in Morgan Hill, CA. We moved to East Texas recently, using the same formula, I'm the envy of my new neighbors for the healthiest tomatoe producing tomato plants. I use many of your practices in my veggie beds here, even with heavy red clay soil. Thanks for all the info you post.

Norma: Yes, we will be at the SF Flower & Garden show, held at the San Mateo Convention Center, from Wednesday, March 19 to the 23. Come see us!

Great value, incredible know-how!
I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains and it is a blessing to have Love Apple Farms so close to home. I attended a recent tomato from seed class and it was simply outstanding. Cynthia does a great job in her teaching, and as a somewhat novice gardener I learned a tremendous amount. I was able to bring home 48 different tomato seed varietals to grow this season. Not only was it a great experience, but the LAF beliefs in sound gardening principles, with a big nod towards productive yet environmentally sensible practices. I used to buy "miracle-No"......now I buy worm poop. Enough said. Thanks Cynthia. Looking forward to fun in the sun in my garden!

Are you going to be at the San Mateo Convention Center again this year? If so, when?

Lise Carver

We loved the Chicken keeping class! We have our chicks happy and safe at home in their little brooder box.
We are eager to take another one of the classes you offer like cheese making and bee keeping or any of the yummy cooking classes.
Thank you so much for all the helpful information.

Hi Cynthia, we love your site and the very helpful information. We visit frequently for advice, recipes and so much more... Our homegrown kale, swiss chard, spinach and all our veggies thank you! We love growing our own food, cooking with wood fired ovens and dining outdoors! No more processed foods for us...

I just had to thank you for that wonderful wreath making class. What fun! Now when driving to work i look at all the potential wreath making foliage by the road. I'm seeing the world in a whole different light. My family loved the wreath i made and i felt so accomplished making that wreath. Thank you again and again for such a wonderfully entertaining and fascinating class.

Dede Dodson

I have a strong resolve this year to gather up your recommended list of ingredients to grace my tomato holes. Thanks for the great tips and as always, your goodwill to share this information so that we may all have tomato bragging rights!

Greetings, Cynthia! I always look forward to receiving your helpful Newletter. I found your comments "Growing Tomato Transplants From Seed" so very simple to follow and helpful. One hardly ever sees the instruction for canning/preserving. It brings back memories of my grandmother canning things from the garden when I was a child. Life today is about making good memories to last a life time. Thank you for making that possible for so many folks!

Jane Baker

Hi,I live in Arroyo Grande and last spring I followed your directions for tomato planting exactly as described including the fish heads. The summer weather was so awful cold at night and cool and/or over cast during the day that the plants grew very slowly and we never got one tomato from any of the 9 var. we planted. My farmers' market friends were equally challenged. I'm definitely coming up for a class. I've seen requests for video tapes - is this a possibility? Hope so, Jane

John Viken

I really enjoyed visiting the farm for the tomato seedling sale last spring. Now I look forward to visiting your new farm if possible. Thanks, your farm is wonderful!

Jeph Remley

I seriously think you need to open up another Love Apple Farm, only in NE Ohio! PLEEEEEEASE!!!

Michaelia Morgan

Thank you for sharing the Love & the Apples :)

Carla

Wow! All I can say is that I wish I were in your area so that I could attend your classes. They sound awesome!! But, alas, I'm in Montana.

You do a fantastic job and I truly enjoy reading your blog, newsletter and facebook.

Happy Gardening!

Hi Cynthia,
I SO want to come back and see the new location! You are an inspiration to the little farmer in me that is longing to come out!

elena lawson

I am hooked! It started with some seeds and your early spring gardening class and the rest is history, at least to my family. I am excited to take many more of your classes in 2011.

Ivan A.

Look forward to growing next season!

Georgia Clarke

Love your farm, love your tomatoes, love the support, love your passion.....What's NOT to LOVE at Love Apple Farm!

Ann Andrews

Hi Cynthia,
Thanks so much working with me to give the Spring Planting class to my husband for Christmas. He'll be so surprised since you sent the certificate to my daughter so he wouldn't see it in the mail! He's so hard to fool.
