Tomatoes are indeed interesting . . . . long considered poisonous by Europeans (I guess because they're associated with the NightShade Family); originating in South America, but now all of those varieties I showed above were developed in Latvia, Rumania, Russia and China. But all of the genetic components were dormant in the original stock discovered in South America . . . . they just had to be given the opportunity to become the dominant genes.

So the stripping of the young leaves off the stems of tomato seedlings gives the surface plant tissue (like Basal Cells) the opportunity to decide whether to continue to follow in its original inclination toward becoming leave material and engaging in photosynthesis or (when buried) to produce root structures that engage in material and water acquisition. Like Stem Cells, they have to make a biochemical decision, they can go either way.

I find it interesting anyway . . . . what would the Italians (or we) have done without the discovery of Tomatoes in South America or Noodles in China? We'd have had no Spaghetti Pasta or Tomato Sauce . . . . we'd be left with only the meat balls ?

It would be a Different World !

Don't think I'd miss the pasta (I'm really not a fan - prolly only have spaghetti once or twice a year, if you can imagine that, lol).

I like Early Girl tomatoes for fresh-off-the-vine eat-at-the-table use. We didn't grow any tomatoes this year tho'. The spring floods put a damper on our doing much of anything outside. I'm paying the price now, trying to clean up the backyard full of weeds, scrub bushes, and small trees. But I'm determined to get back to the tomatoes next spring! wink

I think this thread should have been named "Gardening" instead of "more tomatoes". Have ignored my flower garden and yard for years (deer took it over too). Although it is mid-June, I planted a small patch of grass seed (Pennington One-Step). Took 6 days to sprout which is good. Finally some grass where moss was and weeds. Wild violets are a pain on this property. They are everywhere. Have been digging as many of those up and crabgrass before I expand the patch of grass seed. I had a question to ask but I'll be danged, oh, where the heck do these wild violets come from? Anyone know? Spray weed killer and even round-up's new weed gel (I give that a 5 on a scale of 10) takes too long to kill 'em. I'd like to know how to keep them from coming back. Yes, we ignored weed and feed on the lawn for years (Ken mumbling something about saving the well water and the Chesapeake Bay. I don't care anymore...I want grass. I'm telling you, I put weed and feed out back in late April and he was AMAZED how deep green what little grass we have had turned. I'd told that man for years you HAVE to fertilize. There's only so much nutrients in the soil and that's it - it's gone. I'm surprised all his "How to Have a Great Lawn" books didn't say that. If you know how to control and get rid of wild violets, I'd sure like to know about it.
