Funny, my folks and I were talking about the victory gardens during WWII.
They were born during the depression and grew up during the war.   Nana &
mother always grew wonderful tomatoes.  It irks mother to no end that she
can't grow them in Bear Creek.  Season's too short and not enough sun.  She
always ate them like apples.
