I absolutely love tomatoes. I love growing and eating them.
There is nothing that says "summer" to me more than tomato plants growing in the backyard, well, except maybe going to the beach, but that's another story.
I got my love of growing tomatoes from Punch 'n Gro kits when I was a kid. They were handy little planters of vermiculite filled plastic trays. The directions explained to punch a pencil point through the plastic wells, water and turn the clear plastic top over to make a little greenhouse. Punch 'n Gro had the tomato seeds in the vermiculite, under the wells of the inverted lid, so if I followed the simple directions, I got plants. Yippee!
