Default Tomatopalooza....numbah TEN!

Saturday July 28.

Working out the details - location will be the wonderful home/farm location in Efland, NC - Jimmy and Fred hosted two Tomatopaloozas some years ago (including the ones attended by Rena/Suze/Feldon/Mischka and other Tvillians the first time there, and Patrina and other Tvillians the following year).

Stay tuned for more details as they develop!

Darn it! That's the first day of my vacation.

My family and I are headed in the opposite direction from Efland that day.

Oh well, maybe next year.

Hey Craig! If I have some dwarf tomatoes ready at that time, would you possibly want me to get them to you before the event? Obviously, I don't expect a firm answer at this time, and I don't know how my schedule will be that week.

But if you want to try them, or take them for others to try, I could tentatively plan on doing that. I'm hoping to have Waratah, Tasmanian Red, and Zig Zag Wattle.

Yeah! I've got it on the calendar! Hoping to have lots of dwarfs and Chocolate Truffles to taste.

Praying the weather will be a bit cooler than last year.

Finally some news - or will be! We are having a planning meeting on Sunday evening at the hosts' house/farm - with a long agenda.....following that, we will be able to be clear on exactly how Tomatopalooza will go on this year. It will be a nice, relaxed atmosphere - we've had two great events at this location in the past - and since it is number 10, we may be adding a few aspects in, as well as relaxing some of the perhaps perceived to be more structured aspects of the last few years.....(no worries about limiting numbers, parking issues, etc) - I am pondering adding more food - Salsa contest, maybe? - anyway - stay tuned!

My daughter has a new Tomatopalooza website in development - well, it's launched, actually - but we are making changes to it often!

Just a bit more than one week from Tomatopalooza X! For those who plan on attending...please do go to the website - link here again - http://tomatopalooza.weebly.com/ - and register (simple process - just if you are coming/numbers, if you are bringing tomatoes, and if you want to enter the Salsa competition).

I am hoping my tomato supply holds out - if it were this weekend, I could probably bring over 100 varieties! By next weekend...who knows!
