For the last century the Tomato has been America's favorite garden vegetable--actually a fruit. Gardeners still have many questions about planting, feeding, watering, pruning and supporting their tomato plants. In addition new tomato health problems have challenged the grower. This program will offer information and inspiration for growing this very popular plant.
Christie Higginbottom has worked as a costumed interpreter at Old Sturbridge Village since 1981. From 1984 to 2004 she coordinated the historic horticulture program researching, planning and planting the re-created kitchen and flower gardens at the museum's historic households. She also supervised the Village's Herb Garden collection, a garden exhibiting over 300 varieties of historic herbs. From 2004 to 2006 she researched and developed a series of self-guided walking trails interpreting people and the environment in the early 1800s. She researched and designed the 2007-2009 exhibit "Taking Root: Gardening in Pots in the early 1800s." Now retired from full-time work at OSV, she continues to work in costume part-time and to present garden programs for the Village.
