Alright, that may not be the best opening line, but I'll tell you one thing; if I would have met a lovely lady wearing the "tomato" perfume in this picture when I was look'n for a woman, it would have been love at first wiff. Correction, she didn't even have to be lovely. I don't know about you but the fragrance of a tomato seedling is just about as good as it gets. But wait; it gets even better.
Demeter is the company that makes this line of heavenly...urrr, earthly fragrances and now I learn that in addition to tomato, they have many other tempting choices. Some of the ones on my short list: cucumber, cypress, dandelion, giant sequoia, grass (a best seller), mildew, poison ivy, privet, pruning sheers, earthworm, greenhouse and another best seller--dirt.
Now for you females out there, this may be old news but for the guys in the house, we're a little clueless about some of the finer things in life. My next dilemma; will my wife see this as a thoughtful gift because you can bet I'm going online and buying some of these as soon as I finish this post. She may not see the value in smelling like dirt, but if it drives me crazy, maybe she'll start to apprcciate my gardening addiction just a little bit more.
Special thanks to Naomi Sachs for responding to my twitter request for ways to know you're a gardening addict. Her favorite is Tomato too.
