It’s ‘Big Boy’ vs. ‘Green Zebra,’ hybrid vs. heirloom, cherry vs. sandwich slicer—the tomato wars have just begun and everyone is sure that their tomato pick is the tastiest. Join Washington Gardener Magazine at the FreshFarm Market in downtown Silver Spring, MD, on Saturday, August 24, from 10am-12noon for a Tomato Tasting. Best of all, this event is FREE!
Farmers at the market will contribute their locally grown selections — from super-sweet ‘Sungold’ to not-so-pretty ‘Cherokee Purple’ — and we’ll explore which tomatoes make the short list of favorites. We’ll have tomato gardening tips, tomato recipes, tomato coloring activities for kids, tomato seeds, and much more. All to celebrate one of summer’s greatest indulgences — the juicy fresh tomato.
Tip: Your tomato taste voting ballot is also your entry into our prize drawing for a basket full of gardening goodies. The drawing is at 12noon, so be sure to fully fill out your ballot by 11:45am and then stick around for the prize announcement. You must be present to win.
