All Fridays should have a tasting party. The Organic Gardening team and other Rodale employees gathered to taste and rate the tomatoes we’ve grown in the test garden. Even a couple of confessed tomato-haters gave the fruit another try. Next time I’m hooking up the web cam to capture some priceless facial expressions.
Doug prepares the tomatoes so the taste test will be blind. It is rumored that one of the tomatoes is grocery store organic, just to see if people can taste the difference. Shh!
We gather in front of the wall, where we post the current issue.
The comments started to sound like a wine tasting. “This has a nice finish…” “Mmm, playful but never precocious…” and of course from the tomato-hater, “I need to come up with a new word for YUCK.”
Update–it turns out everyone spotted the grocery store organic tomato. It got a VERY low rating.
