This morning at the gym two of the regulars, Old Lady and European Old Lady*, were discussing their tomato plants and one said, "My girl plants are going strong but my boys aren't."
Um...maybe this is something that I missed in health class, so can someone please enlighten me? How can I tell if my tomato plant is a boy or a girl? And if it's a boy, how come there's two tomatoes on it? And if it's a girl, how did it get in the family way? Immaculate conception? Do I need to have one of each in order to have a successful crop? Should we even be talking about this? It seems a little personal.
*Other regulars include: Puerto Rican Lady, Opera Lady, Boob Lady, Little Mexican Mamita, Really Old Lady, and of course, Cat Woman.
