Default Wow. So is this event going to happen again? :-)

Hi All,

Is this event going to happen again? I hope so. Even though I had to leave early, I still had a great time.

So who's in?

I sent Morningsun Herb Farm an email requesting the date of their tomato tasting event. Hopefully, they reply soon. I also put in several calls to them, but the line is always busy.

If this a definite event, we should let the people on the other website know, especially on the tomato and California Gardening Forums. There are a lot of people that only post on the CA forum that live in the Sacto area that would be interested in this event.

Barb, thanks for creating this forum and taking the lead.

Cheers,

Angelique

Okay...I gave another call to Morningsun Herb Farm and got a reply. Their event is on Sunday, August 26th. Saturday, August 25th seems like a good day to hold NORCATT. This date will allow the out of town people to attend both dates. Please share your opinions?

Cheers,

Angelique

Seems like a good plan to me. Maybe then Barb can make her pilgrimage (Sp?) north again too.

Hi All,

I am in Roseville. There are a lot of very nice parks in Roseville. That said, I am pretty flexible about the location. Please share your thoughts on where we should have this event.

For those of you that attended last year's event, please chime in. Did you like the location where we had the event last year? Was it centrally located?

Do you think that it would be a good idea to post a link to this page in the GW California forum. There are a lot of people the Sacramento area that post in that forum.

Cheers,

Angelique

Correction: Morningsun Herb Farm Tomato Tasting event is August 27th. See response from Rose Loveall below. I guess our event should be on Sat., August 26th.

__________________________________________

Hi Angelique, the date is Sunday, August 27th, 11 am-3 pm. Seems a long way off, but we are busily planting seed now to start selling plants in mid March, and of course, to plant our test field.

August 26th sounds good to me. You gotta love back to back tomato tastings!

Is the same park, Gibbons Park, good for everybody? It is in the Fair Oaks area of Sacramento.

And should I have my sister bring her zuke casserole again? :wink:

Gibbson Park sounds good to me. Your sister's casserole was fabulous.

Okay, so we're looking at August 26th at Gibbons Park. I'd like to get an idea of who all is interested in coming to the event this year. GTG, you came last year, didn't you? I'm so sorry, I have forgotten your *real* name... forgive my forgetful brain...

bob
barb
gtg

bruce? brad? Are you in? I have contacted kristy and janice as well.

Angelique, can you make the contact to reserve the park? I remember that there was an expense for that. We can pitch in and cover the cost, right guys???

Hi Barb,

Sure, I'll make the reservation for the park. How long do you think we will need it? When should we start? How many people do you think will show up?

It is 75.00 a day to rent the park facility. Here's a link just in case any has any questions about the location. http://www.morpd.com/rentals.asp The area is covered with 5 picnic tables.

Cheers,

Angelique

Good...a link to the park.

I cannot remember what time we arrived, but there were others already there. Do any of you guys remember the start time? It seemed we could have used more prep time, as it took so long just to organize and cut the tomatoes. I sure do hope janice can come and do the labeling.

My guess for time would be 10:00 to 3:00. Any other suggestions?

We had around 10 people last year. I sure do hope we get more this year. There were just SO many tomatoes left over.

Hi,
Thanks for letting me know about this years tasting C-Barb! I'll be there, I really regret missing last year, although is was (still) is the weekend for me before school starts. I'll just HAVE to have my classroom prepared before hand, that's all there is to it.

Hi Barb, Angelique and all,

I'm in and I'm starting most of my tomatoes about a month later this year. They were all begining to give out about the 2nd week of August, just before for the last tasting.

And....YES on the zuke casserole, it was great.

It would be great if Janice (Janice, was that you who did this?) could please post the list/results of the 2005 NORCATT tasting. I know we'll all be bringing new varieties this year and it would be interesting to compare.

Thanks.

I don't know if janice is a member here. I have emailed her to see if she can come out. That list fell over the falls at the *other* place. Bruce, do you still have that?
