The LSU AgCenter Garden Fest at the Burden Center was the land of yellow watermelons and tomatoes called potato. Of bloody Marys and omelets. Of hayrides and field tours.
I spent most of my time test-driving different watermelons and tomatoes in the taste-testing tents. Kiki Fontenot, the AgCenter’s tomato expert, said the taste-test was more than just a fun activity, it helps researchers decide what produce farmers should grow. We were collecting data. Tasty, tasty data.
