Notes: What we have here is a lot of tomatoes.  Tomatoes are often thought of as vegetables, but because the seeds are inside of them, they are actually a fruit.  The record for the heaviest tomato is 7 pounds, 12 ounces.  That could make a lot of spaghetti sauce!  Tomatoes are part of the nightshade family, and because of this, people used to think they were poisonous.  That makes me wonder how they figured out tomatoes are safe to eat??
