Well it is approaching quick so I do need to post an update. This years event is on. It will be at my home in Little Mountain SC. The Date is Saturday 17 July The time is 1200 noon and will go until everyone passes out from the heat or have had a fill of tomatoes. Hopefully the later. I have a Bluegrass band scheduled to play from 12-2 or so. The Band is the Sugarloaf mountain boys www.sugarloafmountainboys.com There will be all the fixins for Blts so bring your familiy or friends and see my attempts at growing and hopefully enjoy a nice selection of tomatoes. Please bring any tomatoes you may have to add to the fun. I will provide tables ice water and tea please bring your own chairs a wide brim hat or unbrella to keep the sun out. I have some shade and a large porch but please be prepared for the heat if your interested in looking at the garden. Directions are exit 85 off I-26 turn right regardless of which direction you come and go to the stop sign approx 1.5miles. Turn right onto hwy 76 and go approx 1mile then turn left onto Old Dutch Rd. I am the first house on the left 2528 Old Dutch Rd. Little Mountain South Carolina 29075. Hm # 803-945-4519 if have questions or need help. Parking will be on the gravel road adjacent to my house and garden. My son will assist in parking. Parking will start at the entrance to the road and will be normal pull in side by side parking all traffic will exit by backing out and continuing down the road to the cul de sac. The road is about 1/2mile long. Please only park as directed and only on the road shoulder. This is a dead end road with no one living on it so there will be no traffic. Festivities and tables with tents will be set up around my house with the band under the car port. I have seatting for about 30 people so please bring a chair. I am totally against paper towels paper plates and most other throw away items. I will have glasses, cloth napkins, and plates for the tomatoes and tooth picks for sampling and knifes but no plates for your sandwhich so if you feel you need something else please bring it. There will be plenty of ice water and sweet tea.The restroom facilities will be my home restroom facilities so No porta john. The garden looks good much better than last year. Although this is a tomato tasting I grow numerous heirloom vegetables and herbs for seed companies so I will discuss seed saving, have deminstrations and walk you through the gardens. Be prepared to have my weeder Geese follow you around some Guineas cackling in the hay field and bantam chicks in the garden. I am certified organic and have a strong commentment to preserving the enviroment so I hope to pass on some of my knowledge and experiences. I also have numerous ornamentals plantings around the house please respect my residence and gardens and not take cuttings or seed. I am more than willing to share anything just ask. I hope to see all of ya'll again this year. Rodger
PS I have a website that should be updated by the end of this weekend. www.rodgersheirlooms.com
