Other businesses that contributed to the dinner included Truckee's Farm to Belly, Pangaea Cafe and Pub, American Valley Baking, and Genesee Store Bistro and Dell. Longboard's Bar & Grill from Graeagle offered cooking demonstrations earlier in the afternoon.

HEASLETT Tomato in hand, Karl O'Reilly of the Dawn Gardens, above, leads a well-attended discussion on growing tomatoes Aug. 27 at the fourth annual Homegrown Festival. She covered concerns from water and fertilizer requirements to blights and pest control. One conundrum: What to do with hornworms? They eat the plants while in their larval stage, but provide important pollination once they meta- morphose into their adult form as huge hawk moths. O'Reilly's suggestion: pick them off by hand and toss them out of the garden unharmed. Susan Duniphin and Rich DeLano, top right, offer home- brew tastes at their Undercover Ale Works table, where clever brew names pair with eve- catching graphic designs by local artist Seamas Gallagher. Their Blairsden brewery is currently under construction; for more information, visit UnderCover Mountain Meadows Mead in Westwood also provided local beverage tastings.
