Odes to Tomatoes wanted – yes, really!

OK: I’ll admit to liking the idea of this one – a whole anthology featuring recipes, stories and poems about tomatoes… http://amoebaink.com/thetomatoanthology.htm. Payment for poems is minimal, but if the kickstarter campaign kicks off (sorry), payment may increase. Deadline 1st February 2015.
