This morning I decided that the "vine-ripened" tomato I had bought at Fiddleheads the other day was looking a little neglected and past it's prime, but would be perfect thrown into the tomato soup I was making from Sue Guida's recipe. I cut it open, and, lo and behold:
"What the heck is THAT...?"
"What the heck? Is that...what I think it is?"
"It is. It's sprouts. INSIDE my tomato. I'll be damned."
So once I had gotten over the initial shock, and reassured myself that yes, the tomato was sprouting within itself, and this was not some alien spawn come to steal my sweet soul, I had to wonder: Should I be more concerned with the fact that 1) my tomato is sprouting itself, or 2) the fact that this was the first time in my life I could verify that a store-bought tomato in my hand was a living, fertile organism capable of reproducting itself?
