- TOMATO-TASTIC: Tastings at Bountiful Arkansas Weekend
You don’t have to be a farmer to enjoy Bountiful Arkansas Weekendcoming up at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. You just need to like food. The third annual event on Petit Jean Mountain celebrates our state’s agricultural heritage with classes, demonstrations and lots of food. I went to last year’s event and had a blast — especially at the tomato tasting, where dozens of varieties of heritage and new tomatoes were available to try. You might be surprised by the span of tomatoes — some small and sweet, some big and meaty, ranging from bright yellow to dark purple to red and green striped. This is also a great event to pick up seeds for next year’s gardens. More to come about the event… and the press release is on the jump.
