The first book in the series, Tomatoes, follows the experiences of Dominick as he learns the skill of patience- and that he might just like tomatoes after all. Spring has arrived, and with it, another planting season. With the help and encouragement of his mother, Dominick plants seedlings, and learns how to care for and nurture the plants in a sustainable manner.
