Lesson in tomato farming
Description: Photograph of two boys learning about tomato plants from an older farmer. Caption reads: "Garden Club Highland Park." It is not certain which Highland Park this photograph was taken in, but it seems likely it was taken in Celina, Ohio, north of State Route 703. Ohio is the country's fifth largest producer of fresh and processed tomatoes, after California, Florida, Georgia and Virginia. As of 2001, the annual output was more than 500 million pounds, mainly grown in Fulton, Ottawa, Putnam, Sandusky and Wood Counties. View on Ohio Memory.
