But we grow tomatoes

— feeling amazing

Whiskey posted this article today about reviews on Amazon of Hitler's autobiography. I was upset, and then I got an email from my mom with this photo. She lives in Israel, and the photo feels like the Jewish people are wiping the mad Nazi's nose and saying: "Ha! We survived, and you're dead!" It's so life-affirming.


It's a climbing tomato tree in an Israeli hot house. One tree. Such trees could be up to 4 meters high, and the area of the canopy of one tree could reach 40 square meters. The annual harvest is around 14,000 tomatoes, close to 1,5 tons. The statistics are from my mom's email. She might be exaggerating, but the photo seems to confirm her astronomic numbers.

Turn in your grave, Hitler!
