What Money Can’t Buy 🍅

SUNDAY June 4, 2023

“Only two things that money can’t buy

That’s true love and home grown tomatoes.”

From “Love and Homegrown Tomatoes” by Guy Clark

Summer fun takes off this week with home-grown events and adventures organic to the region. This week the city of Jacksonville hosts ripe juicy fun at the 39th annual Tomato Fest on Saturday with live music, talent shows, contests, and more.

Our feature story in this issue describes several other adventures around the region — from touring local safaris to riding the historic Texas State Railroad to art tours to picking blueberries. There’s something fun for everyone, and it’s all online in County Line Magazine. — Lisa Tang
