    All About Heirloom Tomatoes - From Seed to Salsa

A self-admitted heirloom tomato addict today, she starts seeds and provides between 450-1000 heirloom tomato plants, 55-85 varieties, for the annual Point Loma Garden Club Plant Sale and talks she gives around the county. She was officially  crowned the Tomato Queen by the Point Loma Garden Club in 2007, aptly with a crown adorned with tomatoes!

    Seating is on a first come basis. We hope to see you at the library!

    Springtime is Almost Here!

    And that means it's time for our Annual Plant Sale. It will take place at Westminster Presbyterian Church at 3598 Talbot Street (east of Canon Street) in Point Loma on Saturday, April 26, from 9 am to 12 noon.

    Come join us and take home heirloom tomatoes, unusual vegetables and herbs, beautiful patio container plants, as well as specimen, waterwise, and native plants all gown/created by Point Loma Garden Club members.

    Plan to visit our Club Cafe and Boutique, and visit with Master Gardeners who will be there to answer any gardening questions.

    Proceeds, as always, provide continued philanthropic support for local college scholarships and community organizations. We thank you for your continued patronage and support!

    We hope to see you there!
