Yum Yum
tomato was put "on trial" on September 25, 1820 in Salem,
New Jersey. In front of a courthouse, Robert Johnson ate
a basket of tomatoes to prove they were not poisonous.
The crowd waited for him to keel over dead. He never did.
The best tomatoes I remember having were from New Jersey.

  1. Yum.............. Love tomatoes!
    I love ones from NJ, too!
    Thinking the very best ones were picked off the vine on my grandfather's farm.
    Oh, Tomato Sandwiches!
