A 4th of July Scientific Oddity

Ok, this has absolutely nothing to do with the library, books, reading, or the Teen Summer Reading Program, but I thought it was so cool that I just had to share it. Yesterday while making final preparations for the 4th of July cookout, we sliced open a tomato that had been sitting on the counter for several days. In fact, it had been there so long that I was really surprised that it hadn't gone bad. As it turns out, what had happened was that the seeds had germinated while still inside of a perfectly good tomato. I have never seen this happen before. If anyone else has, please post a comment
