....pure evil, according to our friend "Zeffan" - but the rest of us know
them as tomatoes.

I started ordering my chosen plants the other night, having resolved to
buy just the prolific modern hybrids....but they looked so *uniform* and
I feared they'd taste like those strip-mined styrofoam things you get in
the grocery store, and not one of their descriptions contained the words
"delicious" or "flavorful." So I abandoned all reserve and got a bunch
of heirlooms, too. 24 different varieties in all!

And tonight we'll have another snowstorm. Bluh. I am certainly getting
good use of the wooly things I got for Christmas.
