- Variety of tomatoes
What does a Green Zebra or Great White taste like? How about an Esterina or Wapsipinicon Peach? Find out in the tomato beds at Kelly Way Gardens, which supplies the Woodstock Inn & Resort's larder with fresh produce all summer long, as well as with preserves through the cooler seasons. This year, gardeners seeded 58 tomato varieties; on Saturday, September 1, they'll lead visitors on a tour of the fertile spread to offer a broad tasting of summer's juiciest nightshade.
5th Annual Great Tomato Tasting: Saturday, September 1, 3-4 p.m., Kelly Way Gardens, Woodstock. $25; reservations required. Info, 457-5595, woodstockinn.com.
