Mahaska County Master Gardeners announce a Tomato Fest will be held Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at 6 PM. The popular event is returning for its tenth time in 2021.
This year the topics we will discuss are heirloom tomato seed saving, growing tomatoes and salsa (not the dance). We will taste heirloom tomatoes & fresh salsa. Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite heirloom tomato variety. Attendees with an heirloom variety they wish to share are encouraged to being a few tomatoes. A minimum of one tomato should be washed and cut into sample size pieces.
