And the tomatoes!   Oh my goodness, so much goodness!  Unfortunately, I lost track of what I was tasting but there wasn't a clunker in the bunch.

Oh yes, the little yellow ones- golden peach?  Those were great.  I also liked the Japanese sounding yellow variety.  And the chocolate ones were a favorite too.  I didn't realize how much I love yellow tomatoes, but those were all my favorites.

I got called out of town unexpectedly and by the time I got back it would have been 3:30 before I got there. I'm sorry I wasn't there.   😒

Now I have about 40 chicken wings to eat.

My chaps were at the cleaners anyway.

Garden peach is the fuzzy one and Azoychka is the yellow beefsteak. The big dark strippy beefsteaks is Girl Girl's Weird Thing.  The other 2 dark beefsteaks are African Queen and Spudakee.  The smaller dark tomato is Tasmanian Chocolate.

Let me add my thanks to those folks who did the work for the picnic.  It was nice to see some folks I hadn't seen since the last picnic, and to meet some new folks.  The food, of course was all extremely good.  I especially appreciated the work that astrid did to bring the tomatoes and cut them so we could taste a variety.  I think I sampled about 10 different ones, and my favorite was the Azoychka, which I had never heard of before.

Thank you for organizing it.  We had fun, although BL-6th grader's patience was not what I might have hoped.  (I think the last picnic we attended he was 2 and I remember chasing him around...)  

The Girl Girl's Weird Thing were my favorite tomatoes.

I ended up with matching two metal big tablespoons or smallish serving spoons.  I'm happy to return them to the rightful owner, whoever that may be.  They're clean now :)

I think those were part of the traveling supply bag.

It warms my heart to read all of the delicious responses to this year DR picnic. I was so sad to miss it on account I was tending to domestic repair issues on the homestead. There is no reason more of these similar events can't happen more often. Perhaps a revival of HH at various locations throughout the DMV, or smaller gatherings throughout the community. I know Rocks said the social aspect of this forum was killed off by Facebook, but I think there is hope for this forum to thrive through interaction offline. Each and everyday I am out and about,  I mention this forum in passing whenever I can. I am thankful to be a part of this group, and will continue to spread the value of Don Rockwell.com.

BTW - whoever picked the spot - it was fabulous. Very close to the Beltway; easy for MD, DC, and VA attendees. Large covered pavilion, tons of parking, 3 large grills, and even a stone fireplace if we do spring/fall picnics and weather is cool.

Yes, Hubby and I both really liked the location and thought that particular picnic pavilion was a really nice one.
