Welcome to Homegrown, Homemade. I'm a cook who needs some help in the garden and Fine Gardening's Danielle Sherry is a gardener who needs some help in the kitchen. We've teamed up to show gardeners and cooks of all skill levels how get the most out of their crops from seed to plate. In these episodes, we're growing and cooking with an all-time favorite: tomatoes. 

Episode One: How to Grow Tomatoes
This year, I've devoted an entire bed to tomatoes and have planned for several varities so I can make everything from salads to sauce. Danielle walks me through the placement of the plants I've already got a jump on to ensure a maximum yield.
