This past glorious Sunday, we had over 120 people come to the 3rd Annual Tomato Tasting at the Tiny Diner. In partnership with Seed Sages, we had 35+ varieties donated by local farmers and gardeners (see the list below). With great music in the background by Heart of a Tinman and Eli Utne, 81people voted for their 1st, 2nd and 3rd favorite varieties. Thank you to the following volunteers and tomato growers for donating their time and tomatoes: Lisa Ringer of Two Pony Gardens, Kim and Kim Ganske of Bloomington Gardens, Nick Colacci of Simply Sprouts MN, Mary Stade of south Minneapolis, Les Macare of Racing Heart Farm, Taya Schulte of Tiny Diner @ Garden Farme, Andrea Eger of Hungry Turtle Farm, Cody Mastel of Land By Hand, and Seed Sages (For a complete list of tomatoes at the Tasting and their sources and rankings, please write to Koby@tinydiner.com).
