Tomato 'Abraham Lincoln' seedlings waiting for a good home while The People’s Garden Initiative and volunteer Executive Master Gardeners distributed ‘Abraham Lincoln” Tomato seedlings that the People’s Garden Initiative is distributing to USDA employees in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 in Washington, D.C., on this day, 150 years ago, President Abraham signed the Department into existence during the Civil War. In 1923 the H.W. Buckbee seed company of Rockford, Illinois introduced an heirloom variety named in honor of Illinois’ Greatest Son – Abraham Lincoln. The plant produces large beefsteak tomatoes in about 90 days. Volunteer Executive Master Gardeners planted and cultivated more that 3,000 seedlings ranging in size from one inch to more than a foot tall, so people could choose the best ones to transport home and to stagger the harvest by selecting a small and large seedling. One of the hopes of this event is to share the joys of gardening and harvesting, as well as the opportunity to share your harvest in your community. Seed packets are being distributed to People’s Gardens worldwide. For more information see:’s-legacy-ripe-f... USDA Photo by Lance Cheung.
