Get Your Tomatoes Ready!

The DC State Fair Tastiest Tomato Contest is just two days away. What tomato varieties are you bringing to the competition? Like The Soil Toil said in her blog post:

If 80 percent of success is showing up, then the 2012 DC State Fair’s broad spectrum of twenty+ contests has a little something for everyone – pick one and show up.

So show up at Columbia Heights Community Marketplace this Saturday and win the blue ribbon–plus a one-year subscription to our very own local gardening magazine, Washington Gardener!

You can find the contest details and entry form, and those for our other contests, on our Contests page. You aren’t required to fill out the Tastiest Tomato Contest entry form ahead of time, but it helps us to know how many folks to expect. And remember, you can enter two different varieties, too!

Important Details:

Columbia Heights Community Marketplace (just 1 block north of Columbia Heights Metro at the intersection of 14th Street NW and Park Road NW) runs from 9 AM to 1 PM. We’ll be there all day, but we’ll only accept tomatoes for the contest until 10:30. Judging will start around 10:45. After the winners are announced, we will use any unclaimed contest tomatoes in a cooking demonstration around 11:45–so those who don’t grow their own tomatoes can get a taste of the best DC can offer!
