Take another look at the sentence:

One spring Joe __________ tomatoes in the backyard; pollution, insects, and weekend badminton matches did so much damage to the poor plants that Joe went back to buying canned tomatoes at the grocery store.

The sentence requires the past tense of grow, an irregular verb. Grew is the simple past form.

Verb Simple Present Simple Past Past Participle
grow grow(s) grew grown

Growed, the form you chose, is a spelling error. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
