Tomato Tasting 2012

The fourth annual KCTT Tomato Tasting was in a word – delicious.

After a tough gardening season of high temperatures and little rain, it was good to be among other gardeners, to hear about their adventures, and taste the results. Our hosts, James Worley and Jennifer Nugent, always make it a festive celebration.

This year, the highlight was Local Pig‘s bourbon jalapeno bacon. Who knew a BLT could break out into song?
