1. Wow, sad to be in MA when you are elsewhere!

I'll try again this year with my little plot of tomatoes and basil. Wish you were in my neck of the woods. (PS, if my daughter was still a student at UVA, I'd come to C'ville in a flash. Thanks for all your great information.

In the good old days, my back yard was a field of veggies. My Italian grandmother would visit, trim the tomatoes to an inch of their lives. Best plants ever. The years have passed and so has the garden. I will never give up my tomatoes, other things I can buy at local markets but there is nothing like a good tomato right off the vine. Maybe a little salt, perhaps cut up w/basil, red onion, cuke, a little oil. Heaven. Add a good loaf of Italian bread. What else could I need?

3. NJ would be better than NY

After all, NJ is The Garden State and it is known for its tomatoes.

Rutgers extension in New Brunswick is the place to contact. They have a big spring time activity schedule.

4. thanks - that's only one consideration I need to assess, though

I need to find hosts that offer regular significant programs and cover expenses and a speaking fee - the larger botanical gardens are more often to do that then the smaller extension areas.

Plus our niece lives in NY and we would love to visit her.

5. Came to this forum for info on straw bale gardening

And hope it's ok to ask you a question?

Any thoughts on ways to prevent grubs from getting up into the hay bale?

I am tired of growing food for grubs!

Thanks very much, will check out your books after this move.

Aloha!
