Default Splatt 2012

This years event will be at my home again in Little Mountain South Carolina. Little Mountain is 35miles NW of Columbia right off I-26. The date is July 21 from 9-4. I plan to do tours at 9 10:30 and 2pm. I will provide bread tomatoes and Dukes for the sandwhiches and I will also have dozens of varieties of heirloom tomatoes to sample. I am requesting others bring their tomatoes even if just one to add to all the other varieties that will be present. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Great garden and looks like a wonderful tomato tasting gathering.

Isn't it amazing who much you can get from an acre of land.

Tomatovillians,
If you live within easy driving distance of Central South Carolina you should plan to attend SPLATT on Saturday. Rodger and his wife are wonderful hosts and Rodger has some unusual plants and growing techniques. You are sure to have a good time, taste some interesting tomatoes and you just might learn something. Hope to see you Saturday,
Jim

Thanks to everyone who came Jim, thanks for coming Millard and Carl as always thanks for driving down and bringing tomatoes wish I had got to speak to you both. Holly your cherry tomatoes were great and again I wish I had sopken to you next time don't leave until you find me I look forward to each year to see and speak to everyone. everyone else I hope you had a good time . 99 people signed the guest list but probably 150 in attendance. The band decided to show to taste tomatoes and play some music. Unfortunately a few things went wrong. I made the tea but used the wrong dilution rate and it was basically colored water way too weak. Sorry, secondly I never assigned anyone to take pictures therfore I have no pictures to post. If anyone took some please post . Even with the heat I had tons of tomatoes for sandwhiches and there were three tables of tomatoes to sample. Thanks to everyone who brought tomatoes and I look forward to next year. Rodger
