Who’s behind Tomato Mentor?

Hello there! 

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my tomato-growing website. 

I don’t like wasting people’s time so let’s get to why you’re on this page, shall we? 🙂 

Who am I? 

Emily Jones

Let me briefly introduce myself – my name is Emily Jones (or as most people call me – Em), and I’ve been growing tomatoes for over 30 years. 

Ever since I was a little girl, I always felt enticed by our garden and anything related to plants. I found it fascinating that you can grow pretty much any plant you can think of, but quickly learned that if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’d probably kill that plant. You need the right tools, techniques, and more importantly – knowledge. 

Now, over 30 years later, I am still in love with plants and spent as much time with them as I can in the garden. 

How can you not love them?

My Experience

Long story short – I’ve been a gardener pretty much my entire life. I’ve been growing my fruits, veggies, herbs, berries, nuts, etc. (We all know that homegrown fruits and veggies taste much different than store-bought). Along the way, I also developed interests in bonsais (it’s a living art!), flowers, succulents, and whatnot. The learning never really ends. As time goes by, new techniques, ideas, and tools are developed that improve your gardening skills. I LOVE THAT! I love the learning curve and researching how to improve my skills. 

But you have to remember – you can learn how to be a proper gardener from books, courses, colleges, or even Youtube “University”, but until you use that knowledge yourself, you’d never be a true gardener. 

If you’re a baby gardener, don’t be scared to get your hands dirty. We all start with no or minimal knowledge and skills. Whatever your goal is – You can do it! Start that garden, that tree, that tomato plant or that flower 🙂 

Why did I create this blog?

To be completely honest, we’re all getting old (myself included), and we start to forget. So, the partial goal of this blog is to document some of the techniques, ideas, guides, and tips for myself and along the process to help other people grow their own tomatoes.

Even if help a single person picks a variety, then grow and harvest tasty tomatoes, it would be worth all the efforts I’ve put into the content of this blog. All while helping you to deal with tomato pests and diseases. Let’s face it, all those 30 years of gardening experience means nothing if all the knowledge dies with you. 

What’s with the ads?

The advertisement helps with the bill to keep this site alive and pays for the hosting. I know we all dislike ads, but they help content creators like myself that don’t charge a dime for their tips. 

How can you get in touch with me?
