Tomato Tale, by Angela

Herein tells the story of the gargantuan greenhouse tomato plants. Where once they were but wee bitty seeds, they were watered and given space to grow. Now these wonders shade the aisles of the glass abode longing for their future home. A home among the acres of vegetables, out under the sunshine and rain, roots stretching gloriously into the rich clay loam soils. A home to reach toward the stars at night and burst forth with pounds of sweet delicious fruit for members who cherish the efforts of their life's work. Alas, their time has come this week, without delay, to transition from the warmth and friends in the greenhouse to the canvas of the farm-scape.
