    The Tomato: A Uniter, Not a Divider

    By Kira Hamman

    We’ve mentioned the East Nashville Tomato Art Fest here before.

    The celebration, held each August in East Nashville, Tennessee, touts the power of the tomato to bridge differences, a power organizers say it owes to its own blurry fruit/vegetable identity.

    See the festivities for yourself: Read the rest of this entry »

    Home and the Office

    Edgar Guest

    Home is the place where the laughter should ring,
    And man should be found at his best.
    Let the cares of the day be as great as they may,
    The night has been fashioned for rest.


    So leave at the door when the toiling is o'er
    All the burdens of worktime behind,
    And just be a dad to your girl or your lad--
    A dad of the rollicking kind.


    The office is made for the tasks you must face;
    It is built for the work you must do;
    You may sit there and sigh as your cares pile up high,
    And no one may criticize you;


    You may worry and fret as you think of your debt,
    You may grumble when plans go astray,
    But when it comes night, and you shut your desk tight,
    Don't carry the burdens away.


    Keep daytime for toil and the nighttime for play,
    Work as hard as you choose in the town,
    But when the day ends, and the darkness descends,
    Just forget that you're wearing a frown--


    Go home with a smile! Oh, you'll find it worth while;
    Go home light of heart and of mind;
    Go home and be glad that you're loved as a dad,
    A dad of the fun-loving kind.

  • Keep  Smiling.
  •  
  • bye   bye       DAD.
  • It has happened again. To make a comment use the usual place, then you will have to go way up to save . Sorry that this is happening.  DAD

    11,000 Pounds of Tomatoes, or 11,000 Tomatoes?

    By Vanessa Richins

    The United Press International recently ran a story about a couple in Southern California who are very avid tomato growers.

    They reported that Bill Anderson and his wife, Christine Griego had grown over 11,000 pounds of tomatoes in the past year, and was aiming to grow 15,000 pounds this year.

    They were able to do all of this on a plot of land that is smaller than a quarter acre. The yard is almost exclusively tomato plants, with a few rose bushes and some trees thrown in.

    Bill keeps very exacting Read the rest of this entry »

    Florida Tomato Growers to Hold Contest and Tour

    By Vanessa Richins

    The Salmonella scare certainly hurt the tomato industry a lot as consumer trust fell and many places stopped carrying tomatoes.

    The FDA ultimately discovered that other sources were really responsible for the Salmonella infections.

    Now the growers are trying to win back customers and bring the tomato back to the level of popularity it used to enjoy.

    The Florida Tomato Committee will be bringing the Florida Tomato Culinary Art Tour to 15 different cities throughout the Eastern United States. These cities are : Read the rest of this entry »
