Bhangra Friday Night Vs. Tomato Lecture Saturday Morning


It’s a hard decision. There is a Tomatomania lecture (Saturday, July 22 at 9:30am TOMATOMANIA FOR THE WESTSIDER A tribute to the tomato! Scott Daigre, Mr. Tomato, will share his wealth of tomato knowledge. This workshop will include growing tomatoes in the garden, tasting them in the kitchen and portraying them in art! At Barn Studio, 1660 Stanford Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404) sponsored by Nancy Goslee Powers Saturday morning at 9:30, but there is bhangra Dance Downtown event in the courtyard of the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion tonight! This is a toughie...If I decide to go to the lecture tomorrow morning, that means I have to go to bed at a reasonable hour, which definitely won’t happen. And the lecture is for the Westsiders, and I’m Eastsider....on the other hand it would be cool to hear Scott Daigre speak. That means I’ll have to wake up early on Saturday morning and can’t dawdle and putter as I’m prone to. Hmmm, both are pleasurable and will feed the soul...but BHANGRA it is!!

Well, perhaps I could fit in both- oh, who am I kidding!!??

PS- Just a quick side note: The tomato in the pic is called RED LIGHTNING , and it's a full on hybrid created by Burpee. It's lineage includes the reknowned RED ZEBRA heirloom, and this is supposed to be an "improved" version. It looks like the striping is a little more intense than RED ZEBRA, and I'm not sure if it's open- pollinated (doubt it) or resistant to any fusarium wilts, etc. I almost feel like growing it next year.....stop me stop me...slap my hand!! I did say I was a tramp! Lord protect me from what I want!
