Weird Hobby: Tomato Gardening

I've met a lot of game developers who also garden. It's a pretty common hobby, and one Ichiro Lambe shares. Some developers like to grow flowers, others like carnivorous plants, Ichiro grows tomatoes.

When I was in Boston I had the good fortune to share a few drinks and a dinner with him. Our waitress struck up a conversation with us and somehow the talk started centering around gardening tomatoes, a topic that Ichiro knew way way too much about.

I'm not insinuating his passion for tomatoes in particular goes into dangerous territory, but I never expected that a mild-mannered (if a little odd) game developer would be able to dispense such a high-level of knowledge about everyone's favourite member of the solanum genus.
