On August 15th, 2010  gardeners got to know what purple, orange, yellow and striped tomatoes taste like? It was my fantasy for years to have an event to taste lots of different tomatoes and my friend Dan Yarnick made it happen.

As part of his big Sweet Corn Festival he held The Great Tomato Taste Off. He’s grew nearly 100 different varieties out at Yarnick’s Farm in Indiana for everyone to taste. It was a great opportunity to try tomatoes and see what might be interesting to grow next year. The festival runs from 2pm to 8pm, and I’ll be there cooking tomato dishes, tasting tomatoes and talking gardening from 4pm to 6pm.

Yarnick’s Farm is five miles east of Indiana, Pa, for more information log onto yarnicksfarm.com.
