Now that's what I call a plum tomato! :-)

There are a half dozen pictures of something that might be a purple tomato at ~,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=5254aaba166a86b2&biw=1173&bih=681 ~

As long as you provide a link to the seed company, and mention that the photo came from them, it sounds like Fair Use to me, but I'm an engineer, not a lawyer.

No, you cannot grab someone's photo and republish it, either online or in print, without permission. Linking back isn't enough. I don't want to get into a long discussion about what counts as fair use, but that isn't it.

That is indeed an unusual tomato :P

Don't do it without approval. It could get quite exspensive.

Like the blog, appreciate the share!

The proof will be in the tasting. I should know in a few months! But the road to (tomato) fame is littered with the false promises of many a seed catalog - photos or not.

I feel your pain! I am in constant need of pictures of roses to use on my site. If I am an affiliate of a company, they usually allow me to use photos from their site, if not you CAN NOT copy someone's photos. Don't do it you'll get into trouble!
I encourage gardeners to send in photos of their roses to use on the site, I guess you could do the same.

Hi Amy,
Thanks for posting this. I actually work at High Mowing Seeds and we'd love to have you use some of our photos. I apologize if we were difficult to reach! We will take your advice and post terms of use for our photos on line, but please know that generally speaking, we always agree to share photos with the media- and bloggers! I'll send you our Indigo Rose photo this afternoon.
