Annual Tomato Tasting and Harvest Potluck Dinner
The California Organic Gardening Club’s Annual Tomato Tasting and Harvest Potluck Dinner will be held on Wednesday, August 9th at 7:00 p.m. This program is a highlight of the year for many of our members. The dinner is also a great opportunity for new members to meet and mingle! Guests are always welcome.
The price of admission is a dish to share that you have prepared from your garden’s bounty, be it an appetizer, main dish, side dish, salad, or dessert. If you have them, please bring tomatoes for the tasting.
For the sake of convenience, please bring your tomatoes already cut up for sampling. Be sure to have each variety well marked. If possible, bring an uncut tomato of each variety to display with your samples. The club will provide the plates, toothpicks, and voting slips.
We will be voting on the best tasting tomato overall, along with the additional category of best tasting cherry tomato. After tasting each variety, we’ll mark our ballots, and tally the results.
MAY THE BEST TOMATO WIN!
If you have any other vegetables from your garden that you are especially proud of, bring them and we’ll showcase those as well. So trot out that special squash, pepper, eggplant, cucumber, or melon and give it a chance to shine!
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no exchange table at this meeting.
