Trending on Gardenista: Tool Sheds and Tomatoes

Issue 23 · Cool Dads · June 13, 2014

This week the Gardenista team gears up for Father's Day (good last-minute gift ideas), fills us in on garden gravel, and investigates the dark side of tomatoes.

Here are a few of our favorite posts:

Field Guide to Tomatoes | Gardenista

Above: "Tomatoes are something like that co-worker who sweetly wears pencil skirts and cardigans. Then she starts telling you about the motorcycle she just bought and the skydiving lessons that are her New Year's resolution," writes Laura in this week's Field Guide. To grow bountiful tomatoes, read this personality profile and tip sheet.

Gray house paints | Gardenista

Pea gravel and brick vegetable beds | Gardenista

Above: Hardscaping 101 is devoted to pea gravel for good reason: it's economical, creates weed-free garden paths, and "crunches underfoot as satisfyingly as crispy cereal."

News alert: Gardenista is a co-sponsoring GROW London, a contemporary garden fair in Hampstead Heath on June 20-22. Remodelista's own Christine Chang Hanway is one of the featured speakers, and Gardenista's Kendra Wilson will be curating a display of outdoor furniture and accessories.
