Got online this morning and noticed on Yahoo home page news an article about science finding a gene that makes tomatoes taste fresher and last longer. I've got my doubts, but it was interesting reading. Also there are other farm related links in connection with the tomato article. I think I will reserve judgment on this one until they can grow one the size of a pumpkin.

Tomatoes sold in the stores are really terrible. I try to grow enough during the summer to be able to have all I want fresh and can enough for winter. I don't really like frozen tomatoes, but I have to admit they do o.k. for soup.

Take out the dashes and don't add the words space and. I can't close this up because then it goes to html and dissapears.




then add your link here and enclose the link with this

The name of you link goes here, and then close it with


again take out the dashes. Then you get something like this.........
