It's a tomato! It's a carnival ride! It's both!
This groovy image is one of many that gardener and tomato guru Craig LeHoullier has scanned from vintage seed catalogs. Some lovely color covers in there too.
If you love tomatoes—I mean all kinds of tomatoes—you might dig Craig's Web site and blog. He is the co-host of Tomatopalooza, an heirloom tomato-tasting held in Raleigh, N.C., each July. I went in 2005 and can't believe I haven't made it back since. The date's not set yet for this year—watch Craig's blog for updates!
