The USDA reports that tomatoes are the second most commonly consumed vegetable in the US, second only to potatoes. Americans consume about 46 pounds of potatoes per person each year and 31 pounds of tomatoes per person each year. And gardeners here in the Ozarks still love to grow tomatoes, but they can be challenging. Come to the expo and share in the flavor and excitement of a quality Ozarks or home grown tomato! more...
