Get Growing, St. Louis!

In the past, the Missouri Botanical Garden hosted an annual tomato contest awarding cash prizes for those who grow "the best tomatoes." Sadly, 2008 was the last year they hosted this contest, right after we began growing our own tomatoes at YellowTree Farm. Thankfully this year, Justin took the initiative to form a group of people to help organize The Good, The Big and The Ugly Tomato Festival! It's taking place this Saturday from 12-4 at Sappington Farmers Market on Watson Road. There are various fun categories tomatoes will be judged on - and at $1 per entry, anyone from experienced pros to newbies are welcome to enter. In addition, there will be live music, seed saving demonstrations, and a tomato mixed drink contest featuring area mixologists and local tomato growers. Click here for more information.
