Annual Tomato Festival (Late August Bloomday)

After a two year hiatus, the Annual Tomato Festival hosted in Papi & Mama Tomato's beautiful garden is back and better than ever! Not to steal Papi's thunder, but he has been very tardy in posting anything regarding his garden. So, for today's very late August Bloom day, I will be posting pictures of his fabulous garden and some of the delectable treats served to our guests at the Tomato Festival last weekend!

A Platter full of YUM! (Copia, Zapotec, & Azoycha)

The spreads: Italian salsa, pesto, and Hubby's tomato tartar (aka tomato crack, recipe forthcoming!)
