Default New law somewhere about only being able to grow one variety.

On another tomato forum, a poster recently stated that that they passed a law where he lives which states that people can only grow one variety of tomato. Has anyone heard of this.

People are saying the law is more restrictive than just 1 variety. The tomato must also be a standard color red and larger than a cherry. Also no weird names. I believe the reasoning is we have to try and get back to basics.

It was a game. ...
They were just asking if you could only grow one tomato what would you grow.
Of course there is no tomato law

Yea, it was a game. Sorry, I'm so edgy. Frankly it wouldn't shock me though. �� Happy growing season to everybody.

Well, law and order and all that. Some folks respond to that favorably...

I think law still exists but order? Perhaps under 6ft of earth. Same as common sense.
