Tomato Extravaganza

I'll be speaking at the  UCCE Master Gardeners' 6th annual Tomato Extravaganza and Plant Sale on Saturday, August 18! I haven't decided yet whether I'll bring a chicken with me. Oprah, my Buff Orpington, is the obvious choice. She hasn't done an event in some months, but she's pretty social.

They call it a “Free “edible” festival,” Saturday August 18, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, at the Garden of the Seven Sisters 2156 Sierra Way, San Luis Obispo, near intersection of Johnson & Bishop.

Join the SLO Master Gardeners in their sustainable demonstration garden for this annual celebration of one of America’s favorite summer fruit. Taste many types of tomatoes and basil. Lots of edible and landscaping plants for sale! Mediterranean Climate Plants, Basil, Herbs, Berries, and Fruit Trees.

10:00-11:00 am: Cooking demo with Chef Joe Thomas of Thomas Hill Organics

11:00-12:00 pm: Tomato Grafting with the California Rare Fruit Growers.

12:00-12:45 pm: Success with Succulents!!!

Activities for children. Visit our many educational gardening plots.
