MASTER GARDENERS SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL TOMATO TASTING CONTEST SET FOR AUGUST 28TH
If you are like most gardeners, tomatoes are number one in your heart. Most of us eagerly anticipate the first delicious fruit of the season. We are all looking for the perfect tomato. Saturday, August 28th is your chance to put your tomatoes to the ultimate test! Amador Master Gardeners are sponsoring a tomato judging and tasting at the Sutter Creek Farmers Market.
To be judged, bring at least one washed tomatoes of each variety (at least five cherry tomatoes) to the Sutter Creek Farmers Market by 9:00 AM on Saturday, August 29th. The judges will announce their favorites at 10:30 AM. The largest tomato will receive a special award.
Join us for the public tasting and you will have the fun of tasting all kinds of tomatoes, from tiny grape-size tomatoes to giants the size of grapefruits and a variety of colors, including yellow, orange, pink, tiger striped, and of course, ruby red. We are sure to have a tomato you’ve never tasted before and that will become your new favorite.
