Default Winners!

Thank you Remy for a great Tomato TasteFest! The weather was good, the tomatoes tasted great, everybody there had a great time, and those of you who couldn't make it were greatly missed! Personally I particularly missed Tauna, Zana, Terry, Pomona and Michael.

I am going to post pictures of this years winners tonight. There will also be a list of and picture of every variety at the party, but not tonight!

Prettiest tomato: Solar Flare, grown by Julianna Griffin
Ugliest tomato: unknown variety, grown by Mark Korney
Smallest tomato: Sweet Pea Currant, grown by Claire
Sweetest tomato: Sungold, grown by Remy Orlowski
Tangiest tomato: Michael Pollan, grown by Julianna Griffin
Largest tomato: Kardia Karpos, 1.5 lbs, grown by Rob Kavanaugh
The Norm Brown award for the craziest tomato lover went to Claire!
Best tasting tomato: Goose Creek, grown by Rob Kavanaugh

Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you for sharing your great tomatoes with all of us!

Thanks for posting Hilde! It was a beautiful day. I think everything turned out great. Thank you as always for taking the pics. I can't wait to see the rest of them.
It was great to have RayR there finally!
