really liked it

This book is pretty appalling. Now I know why I don't really like store tomatoes - because they are usually trucked all the way across the country and are grown in a place they shouldn't be grown.

Also, apparently today's tomatoes have 16 times the sodium that garden tomatoes did back in the 50s. WTF. I'm sticking with heirlooms & locally grown.

Rebecca This is probably why I can't eat tomatoes, and have an easier time with heirlooms. Bleh.
