Tomato Tornado II

Yes, this is the weekend of our second annual Tomato Tornado. Last year's event was a success, but we realized that we'd cut a few corners, not on the tomato plants, but on offering information about the individual varieties.
Take home a handout and check off your favorites
We have an updated handout featuring information on the tomatoes, including whether or not they are heirlooms, what colors, shape and size the mature fruit will be, what to expect with taste and other information to take home.
We've trialed many varieties in our own gardens
Each of the 66 varieties offered this year also has a sign indicating some of the same information. The aisle is set-up to be browsed, and the tomato information is easy to compare to allow our gardeners to make sound decisions. And, two of our favorite tomato aficionados, Dotty and Sheila, are available for questions and advice.

If you love tomatoes and are curious about growing them, this is the weekend for you to explore our tremendous selection. Our farm greenhouses have delivered the plants. About half of our tomato plants will just be available until we sell out, but, don't worry. If you are unable to check in with us this weekend, we will continue to have almost 40 varieties that are grown in in Valley View Farms' own greenhouses. In the meantime, enjoy growing your plants. Here are some recipes provided for us last year by Chef Tom Schwarzweller.
