WHERE: Blithewold’s Vegetable Garden
The verdict is out and we need your help to decide which tomato is the tastiest of the season in Blithewold’s vegetable garden! After visiting the vegetable garden to learn about each variety of tomatoes, you and your family will have the opportunity to taste each tomato, and place your vote for the best tasting tomato of the season!
As votes are being tallied, you are encouraged to enjoy live music and a craft activity. Leo’s Ristorante will be passing out samples of delicious food items, made with ingredients from our vegetable garden!
Event included with regular Mansion Admission.
