It's called a vegetable mostly, but it's really a fruit. It's round, luscious, smooth-skinned and firmly packed. They are much better when raised In their natural environment rather than under artificial hot-house conditions, and they are chock-full of vitamins. Just looking at a tomato gives you a lift for they brighten up the place with their fresh vivid color. The younger they are the better they taste, but you don't want to pick them when they are still green. Sometimes, when you squeeze them, they hit you in the eye. - o - THERE IS ANOTHER KIND OF tomato - a pretty girl. She's called by a vegetable name, but she's really a person. She is also round, firmly packed, smooth skinned and luscious. She's better, too, when she looks natural without resorting to artificial aids, and although most people like this kind of tomato a little on the green side, they seldom like them over-ripe. Looking at this kind of tomato gives some people a lift and there are people who consider them best when very fresh. As with the other kind of tomato, you can get hit in the eye, if you try to squeeze them. - o - IF WE EVER GET FANCY enough at our house to have a family coat-of-arms, I am sure that some place on it will be a picture of a tomato. Tomatoes had quite a bit to do with our courtship, we raised and canned tomatoes every summer in Iowa and now we're trying to raise them all year long in Florida. - o - FATHER LIKES BOTH KINDS OF tomatoes. I firmly approve of his fondness for the vegetable kind, but I frown upon any tendency he might have for the girl-type. It's probably narrow minded of me, but I like to protect my own Interests. Tomatoes may grow on vines, but good husbands don't. When you have gone to all the trouble of acquiring one, you ought to be careful to preserve him. - o - MANY OF THE TECHNIQUES IN the care and training of husbands are the very same ones you use in rearing children. If they show any particularly strong trait that might become undesirable, you have to channel it so that it goes in the right direction. Thus, long ago, when I found out that my husband likes tomatoes, I decided I would see to it that he had all of them that he wanted. He can admire them, pat them, squeeze them and pinch them. Just so It's the vegetable kind! - o - THE PRACTICE OF THIS THEORY started 25 years ago, the summer we were engaged. I was more of a tomato myself in those days than I am now, and it really wasn't so much of a Job to get the young man I'd picked out to put a ring on the business finger of my left hand. However, he had a tendency to coast along with the status quo and he wasn't in nearly so much of a hurry to start housekeeping as I was. So, one night when he said he sure did like tomato juice, I suggested we make some. - o - EVERY NIGHT AFTER WORK we'd go down in the basement of my folk's house with a bunch of tomatoes. Pa would court this tomato and we, together, would quart the other kind. First he'd squeeze me a little and I'd squeeze him. Then we'd both squeeze a lot of tomato juice. It got to be so much fun that pretty soon we had all our jars full. So we got married in September so we could drink up all that tomato juice t - o - FOR MORE THAN TWENTY YEARS afterward, each summer we'd grow and can tomatoes. Meanwhile, we raised two extremely lovely "tomatoes" of the girl type, plus a son who certainly picked a fine "tomato" of his own. And we moved to Florida and though we no longer can tomato juice we have a chronic case of tomatoes in our backyard all of the time. While tomatoes can be raised all year long here, the bugs and the birds and the nemotoids see to it that we harvest only a fraction of every planting. It simply isn't true that in Florida you can put seed in the ground and then jump back before it grows and hits you in the face! But still, if anybody should ask me when we celebrate our Golden Wedding, what the main factor was in keeping our marriage reasonably happy, I shall have to answer tomatoes! - o - DURING THE WEEK OF JULY 11 through 17, we are wishing happy birthday to Judy Naylor, Timmy Parrish, Jeff Merryman, Pam Hopkins, June Mawdsley, Wes Bartlett, Wilma Strayer, Betty Carlson, Arlene Gerdis, Ray Bilsborough, K.

I don't have a single wedding anniversary listed for this week! - o - ABOUT THE ONLY TOMATOE recipe I can think of right now is Nettie Etherington's Tomato Soup Mix for Canning. Its good for beefburgers, spaghetti and other dishes - there's more things calling for tomatoes than for any other ingredient. Z bunches celery, chopped 6 medium onions, chopped 1 peck tomatoes, washed and cut up 1/4 cup salt 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup flour about 1/2 tsp. red pepper Boil celery, onions and tomatoes until tender and sieve. Add salt, butter, flour and red pepper, Boil together for 1/2 hour. Stir carefully because it sticks easily. Fill fruit jars with soup and process in boiling water bath for 30 minutes.
