Steve Goto, The Tomato King

Steve Goto is a third generation nurseryman. He closed the family business, Goto Nursery, in 2005, after 45 years of business. However, his beautiful heirloom tomatoes were still in high demand, as were Steve's years of experience and teaching ability. Steve's expertise is entirely based on experience. His hands-on information base makes Steve's lectures unorthodox and unique. He does not follow anyone's footsteps but teaches purely off of the evidence of his own trials.

Steve leads informative seminars all over the west coast every spring, where he teaches about growing heirloom tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and more. He will be holding a seminar at Grangettos on Saturday, March 22 at the Escondido location, from 10am-12pm.

This recent project, which we call a "Food Forest and Victory Garden Reimagined," is located on the bluff right above Solana Beach, off South Granados Avenue. The couple, a cardiac surgeon and her husband, a retired helicopter pilot, wanted to expand their garden capacity and generally create an outdoor space that would be conducive to an outdoor and eco-friendly lifestyle.

Growing super berries
By Nan Sterman, Special to the U-T

I get many queries about growing so-called "superfoods." There is no scientific definition of what makes a food a "superfood," but if the idea that a fruit or vegetable has so many health benefits that it makes people more interested in eating or growing them, I'm fine with that.
