Back by popular demand . . . the 4th stop on the Local Farm Tour Series is a good, old fashion tomato tasting at the Fairfield County Ag Center. This year, in addition to tasting your favorite variety, we'll also talk about the tomato diseases we often encounter, and also preserving the crop once it's grown.

The Master Gardener Tomato Tasting program will be held at the Fairfield County Ag Center located at the 831 College Avenue, Lancaster. Bring us your most favorite tomato variety and we will see how well it stacks up with other tomato varieties offered for tasting. It should be a fun evening of learning and sharing.

In addition we'll answer your questions about tomato variety selection, growing conditions and diseases. Also, Shannon Carter, Family Consumer Sciences Educator will be on hand to answer all of your tomato preservation questions.

The event is open to all interested gardeners and your only cost of admission is one tomato of your favorite tomato variety.

Know your farmer, know your food! Join us for an evening exploring one of our most basic locally grown commodities. Reservations are not required, but are appreciated by contacting OSU Extension (740-652-7260).
