tomatoes
A guide to popular home garden vegetable
Tomatoes:  Some like it Hot:  Some tomato varieties can ride the heat-wave with you, setting fruit even as the temperature rises.  Below are some basic terms, tips, types and a list of heat-set tomato varieties that like it "hot."
Tomatoes are the most popular vegetable in home gardens across America; most gardeners agree nothing tastes better than a home-grown tomato.
It's important to understand common tomato terms, often seen on tomato plant tags and the basics of growing tomatoes…. the more you know the better you'll grow. Now through mid-July, you can plant extra tomatoes for later harvests in fall, often right up to frost dates if you protect them overnight or harvest them green and ripen them indoors.

Pardon the usage, but gardening really is as old as dirt. What's new includes the modern technology "QR codes" being used at both Simpson Garden Park and Wintergarden Nature Preserve. WATCH VIDEO
For those of us stuck in the dark ages, QR codes, short for quick response codes, are those funny squares which smart phones and similar devices can scan and link the users to a Web site. Most people are familiar with the standard bar code series of lines used on all products in stores. The QR codes will likely be as common in the near future.
Chris Gajewicz, natural resources coordinator for Bowling Green Parks and Recreation, is very excited about the use of the codes in the parks.
"Not everyone has a smart phone now, but they will in five years," Gajewicz said. "This is a giant teaching tool."
Assisting in the project is Kyler Klann, a student volunteer who is a senior at Bowling Green State University.
Klann, of Dearborn Heights, Mich., is studying environmental policy. She is creating many of the codes which can be found in the two parks.
Gajewicz said, "We have a multitude of plants in the garden and the most common question we get is, 'What is it?'"
The second most asked question is "Where can I get it?"
