Spring is here!

Finally, the sun has appeared. Time to plant some tomatos. Hope to place these on a few nice salads.

What a fine looking speciman of tomato plants. Will you name it? Here is a little bit of trivia for you on your new purchace...The Tomato History has origins traced back to the early Aztecs around 700 A.D; therefore it is believed that the tomato is native to the Americas. It was not until around the 16th century that Europeans were introduced to this fruit when the early explorers set sail to discover new lands. Throughout Southern Europe, the tomato was quickly accepted into the kitchen, yet as it moved north, more resistance was apparent. The British, for example, admired the tomato for its beauty, but believe that it was poisonous, as its appearance was similar to that of the wolf peach. Silly Brits! I am sure the Italians embraced the tomato as you do today :) Hows that for positive?!!
