A mildly interesting little book. Weird size. A bit outdated now that we've got the internet.

If you like tomatos, this is a good book. I learned a little about the history of certain tomatos and some hints on the care of tomatoes!!

This might be on my list to read next time BEFORE I get my tomato plants for the year next spring!
