Tomato Lust

Posted May 23, 2007 7:11 a.m. EDT

I woke up this morning hungry for a tomato sandwich. It happens every year about this time. For more than six months I've been deprived of those luscious orbs of lycopene.

Sure you can find tomatoes at the grocery store every day of the year but there's nothing like a homegrown variety to set your spirits soaring.

Several questions today:

1. Where can you find the perfect tomato and when?

2. What is your favorite variety of tomato?

3. What is the best way to grow tomatoes at home?

4. How do you make the perfect tomato sandwich?

Excuse me while I go fetch some Duke's Mayonnaise. I await your words of wisdom.
