Tomatoes take the prize
The Vashon Farmers Market hosted the annual Tomato Taste-Off on Saturday, Aug. 23. Shoppers tasted more than 20 varieties of Island-grown tomatoes and chose their favorites in four different categories.The winners include, from left to right, Mira Jewell-Peterson, Rose Jewell-Peterson, Rob Peterson, (Plum Forest Farm), Leda Langley, (Langley Fine Gardens), Joe Meier and Mary Robinson (accepting for Michelle Crawford of Pacific Potager). Joe Meier received special mention as the only non-farmer who entered the contest, offering up tomatoes grown in containers instead of a greenhouse.
