Its interesting that you noteIts interesting that you note how tomatoes were declared a vegetable while biologically they are a fruit. According to Jewish law, the blessing made on tomatoes is 'haadama' - which is usually made on vegetables while 'haeitz' is made on fruit. I think this actually has to do with the fact that tomatoes are grown as low plants and not in a tree per se. Anyway, I"m trying to grow tomatoes for the first time ever - so thanks for the tips. What do you think of the small plants this far? http://mygoinggreenblog.blogspot.com/2012/05/how-to-grow-tomatoes-from-seed.html
