Way to grow

When gardening writer Adrian Higgins first talked to be about this story for the Washington Post, I knew it was going to be great. It would showcase Higgins’s witty voice, and I needed an illustrator who could pull off something equally fun but still botanically accurate. I hired illustrator Vidhya Nagarajan to draw the eight types of tomato growers as well as the cover concept: a tomato vine weaving around a metal trellis that housed the headline. I proposed this headline after pitching the concept, and it stayed!
