Molly of Life on Tiger Mountain has graciously invited the Seattle garden blogging crew out to her Issaquah-area place for snacks, elderflower beverages and a tomato tasting this Saturday, August 15. Bragging rights will be awarded in various tomato categories (see below), and this might actually be the meeting where we get around to discussing blogging. Maybe.

Here are the details, courtesy of Molly – we’d love to meet some new folks so if you haven’t joined us yet, please come on along!

Saturday, August 15, 2:00 pm – whenever

Garden tour and tomato tasting (at least 5 varieties available for tasting)

You are welcome to bring your favorite variety of tomato for tasting, whether homegrown or from the farmers’ market

Tomato tasting is subjective, so no competition here. BUT! There will be prizes for the largest tomato (homegrown), smallest ripe tomato, and most anthropomorphic tomato (resembling a face or other portion of
the human anatomy).

(For directions, email me at by Friday night, and I’ll send them along!)

    Looking forward to it! Great photo. 🙂

  2. Sounds like fun. I did think of you and this get-together when I harvested 2 tomatoes last night that I could easily ascribe anthropomorphic qualities to. Unfortunately they are not fit for family viewing, if you know what I mean. Wow.

    Too bad I won’t be able to make it again, I even have some good tomatoes this year. Some are from the Anna Russian tomato plant Molly gave me at the only meeting I was able to make. Have a great time and I can’t wait to hear the details.

    Eek. That tomato is an oddball. As a bad gardener and a bad vegetarian, I don’t like tomatoes, but your get together sounds fun nonetheless. Have fun.
