Nature Sweet 2006 Tomato Challenge in Sacramento
First prize is $5,000 and three $250 store vouchers will be awarded to runners up. On September 9, contestants must bring three medium or large tomatoes OR 10 small tomatoes (entries must all be of the same variety) to the Raley’s at 25025 Blue Ravine Road in Folsom between 9 and 11 a.m. for judging. ONE ENTRY PER HOUSEHOLD.
What have you got to lose but that empty feeling in your wallet and that unsung glory for your oh, so deserving tomatoes? If you don’t win, you can always go grocery shopping… or to the lake… or the Folsom Outlets or something. Any nurseries over there? Folsom Lake Nursery closed, right? Bushnell’s isn’t too, too far from Folsom. That’s always worth a stop.
The Tomato Challenge Hotline toll-free number is 1-800-315-8209.
Good luck, Sacratomatans!
