Seeds for the Lincoln Tomato were so popular, The Department of Agriculture and the Old State Capitol State Historic Society are bringing them back.
A limited supply of the heirloom variety seeds that date back to the 1920’s are up for grabs beginning at 10am Thursday as part of the History Comes Alive tourism at the Old State Capitol.
More than 500 seed packets were handed out during the week between Lincoln’s Birthday and President’s Day.
The free seeds will be limited to one packet per person. The site at the Old State Capitol will be open until 5pm on Saturday.
