MAGTAG Award Makers at Work

So my kids are getting together with their friends to make the awards for our annual Aug 20th MAGTAG tomato tasting. They have lots of colored posterboard, beads, ribbon, paint etc. Last year we went up to 20th place but that seemed a bit much. This year I will go up to 15th.

Cecelia, does that sound good to you?

We, of course have the tip jar that the kids made 3 years back and I will bring a long roll of table cloth for the tables and lots of duct tape.

My wife has been experimenting with many tomato recipies and my friends who I gave plants have been bring in their concoctions. One of my favorite was cherry tomatoes with mozzorela balls, olive oil, fresh chopped basil and balsamic vinigrette.

As far as tomatoes this has been a good year but I have had to pull some plants due to Fusarium and some have died prematurely for other reasons. Due to my new soil my Black Cherry are not as flavorful as I would like. That said I should be able to represent at 15 to 20 varieties which will be an all time high for me.

Hope to see you all there!

I posted last week (don't know why it isn't showing up) that I will bring two jars of MAGTAG 2010 Roasted Tomato Sauce to contribute as prizes, however you folks would like to distribute them.
