Tomato Tasting for TOMATOmaniacs

tomatomania.jpgThe organizers of Tomatomania!TM have organized a homegrown tomato tasting this Saturday, August 6, 2005, from 10:00am to noon at the Sepulveda Community Garden (across the freeway from the Tapia Brothers Farm Stand located at 5251 Hayvenhurst Avenue, Encino). Here is their invitation:


I hope the summer is going well and that your gardens and veggies are happy.

While I’ve spoken to some of you or gotten messages recently I wanted to be sure you got the e-mail about our tasting this Saturday. We would love to see you and catch up. We’re very excited about the Sepulveda Community Garden location and think this may become a nice tradition.

Our Tapia trials were super this year but have tuckered out in this heat. We did our last picking on Saturday, some of which will hold over until this weekend, thank goodness.

We’ve also received well over a hundred responses to our “How does Your Garden Grow?” appeal this summer, so we have many good notes, tips and stories to share next spring. One of those lucky participants will receive 2 tickets to TOMATOFEST in Carmel in September. Have you gotten YOUR tickets yet?

Hope to see you this Saturday with proof of your superior crop in hand! If we don’t see you this weekend, let me know what’s up – and enjoy your vacations or days off or time in the garden for the rest of the summer. Maybe you’re getting out of this heat for a bit?

Take care,
Scott (and Gary and Kate too)
