The application deadline for "edibles" judges is Saturday, Sept. 8.

From a Piedmont Harvest Festival press release:

If you like the idea of tasting pies, cakes, salsas, pestos and other delicious homemade foods, you may be a candidate for judge at the upcoming Harvest Festival’s “Edibles” contest, part of Piedmont’s 14th annual event, being held on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2012 at Piedmont Park (www.piedmontharvestfestival.org).

To be considered as a judge for the popular “Edibles” competition, you need to live or work in Piedmont and submit a short essay of 50 words or less, about why you would be a good choice for this tasty position.

To enter, please send your essay with your name, email and phone number to Jerry Miller at roseave@pacbell.net. The deadline for submission is Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012.

On the Lookout for Lemons 

 Freshly squeezed, homemade lemonade has been a perennial favorite at the Harvest Festival. Every year more than 500 pounds of lemons are collected from generous tree owners in town.

“We squeeze the lemons to produce more than 50 quarts of juice, representing a unique combination of the Eureka, Genoa and Meyer varieties,” said Jerry Miller, Festival chairman. More than 1,000 glasses of Harvest Festival Lemonade are made each year for the festival.

If you have lemons that you can donate, please email Jerry Miller at roseave@pacbell.net. Arrangements for volunteers to pick lemons from residents’ trees can be made, or bags of lemons can be picked up from doorsteps.
