It's summertime and Guy Clark's song Home Grown Tomatoes sung by John Denver is on our minds and filling our taste buds.

"Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would life be like without homegrown tomatoes?
Only two things that money can't buy

That's true love and home grown tomatoes"

Come taste, through the magic of radio, all kinds of earthy tomato delights, as Kathy cooks at the At Home Store and Steve just keeps on talking and eating.

Go pick yourself some homegrown goodness and cook along with Great Taste


Wednesday from 7-8pm / Friday rebroadcast 7-8am
