2nd Annual Blithewold Tomato Taste Test

WHEN: Sunday, August 24, 2014 at 11:00AM - 3:00PM
WHERE: Blithewold's Vegetable Garden

Once again we need your help to decide which tomato in our gardens is the tastiest of the season. After a visit to Blithewold’s vegetable garden to learn about each variety, you and your family will be able to taste each tomato and then place your vote for the best-tasting contestant!

As votes are being tallied, enjoy live music and a craft activity. Fresh-from-the-garden foods will be dished out by participating restaurants.

This is a FREE Member Day! Included with admission for non-members. Pay admission at the door.
