Who Grows The Best Tomatoes

Who Grows The Best Tomatoes

Do you grow the best tomatoes in the County?  Later this month you’ll have your chance to put your tomatoes to the ultimate test! The UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County are sponsoring their annual tomato judging and tasting contest at the August 26th, Sutter Creek Farmer’s Market. Bring at least one washed tomato of each variety (at least five cherry tomatoes) to the Sutter Creek Farmers Market between 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 26.  The judges will begin their tasting at 10:00 a.m. and announce their favorites by 11:30 a.m. Prizes will be given for the biggest, as well as best tasting red, non-red and cherry tomatoes. Judges this year include Steve Muni of KVGC radio, Darius Somary, consultant, and Scott Oneto, Amador County Farm Advisor and farmer. A public tasting will follow the judging. For more info call the Master Gardener office 223-6838.
