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.
