The crowd was thick and the weather was mild Saturday morning for the eighth annual Kansas City Tomato Times Tomato Tasting.
It was difficult to keep up with slicing tomatoes for the steady stream of heirloom enthusiasts who arrived to taste the bounty of summer. More than 200 arrived to sample and discuss their plans for growing next year. With 58 varieties and a colorful palette ranging from from the pale White Tomesol to the deepest dark colors of Black Krim, the diversity of tomato varieties was impressive.
James Worley and the folks at The Local Pig have announced that next year’s tomato tasting will be held August 5th, 2017, so save the date.
