It’s tomato time! Santa Barbara friends, I’m doing two events at Porch on Saturday, April 22nd – a free garden talk in the morning and then a cooking class that afternoon.

I would love for you to join me to get the down and dirty on growing the most delicious tomatoes in town.


Morning talk: Get the dirt on tomatoes
April 22, 11:00 – noon

Tomatoes are the stars of the summer garden, but selecting the right varieties can ensure they are also showstoppers in the kitchen. From dirt to dining table, I’ll share my tips and tricks for growing and selecting the right tomatoes for your garden and your taste buds

Come for the planting demo, growing tips and helpful suggestions on picking the right type of tomato from dirt to dining table.

I am not able to open my recipe box. It got emptied without my doing. I tried so many versions of Name and User., but none worked. i sent a message requesting help about this several weeks ago, but never received an answer. I’ve been a subscriber for years. What to do???

TOMATOES….From Dirt to Table, Saturday, April 22nd. What a delightful afternoon……Thank you Valerie and the kind staff at PORCH in Carpinteria, CA. I’m looking forward to planting my tomatoes, cooking with them and wearing my new Valerie Rice bistro apron.

Enjoy your bookmarker!

Dearest, Barbara, thank you for making the drive (thru the terrible traffic!) from Pasadena to attend the class. It was a pleasure to meet you. I have already put my beautiful bookmarker to good use! Thank you, again!
