Miracle #1 - the temperature! The conditions were suitable for human life (unlike the previous two months....)
Miracle #2 - the tomatoes! And to think Lee and I were a bit concerned when matching people and tomato donor numbers....(thanks to Miracles #3 and 4, see below)
Miracle #3 - Ira and Lisa from the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange tomato delivery service!
Miracle #4 - Darrel Jones from the Alabama tomato delivery service
Miracle #5 - that the venue chosen, and logistical planning, led to a smooth, stress-free, manageable event!
Miracle #6 - Lori, Brian and all of the other incredible volunteers! You allowed Lee and I to really do what you said you would do - show up, taste and talk!
Much more later....
And a recipe below (much requested, and quite delicious...) - thanks to Thom Wiley for providing the goodies at the event, and the recipe!
And....here is a link to co-host Lee Newman's digital pics from the event, from the Tomatopalooza website.
