Rosie O'Donnell announced today
that she is leaving the talk show in

June, after just one year.

A-B-C says it could not reach a
contractual agreement with the
comedian.

A few months ago, Donald Trump
got into a war of words with O'Donnell
after she criticized him for not firing
Miss U-S-A.

He has his own opinion of why
she's leaving.

Real Estate Mogul I wasn't surprised. I've been
predicting this for a long time. Rosie
is a very self destructive person.
Rosie is basically a loser. I believe
ABC wanted her out. They wanted her out
badly, and fast.

Nursery in Salem has already started
growing over 70 varieties of Heirloom
tomatoes. Heirlooms are considered to
be any plant which has been around for
more than 100 years.

Feldberg says warm nights are
crucial to starting the delicate fruit.
As for watering, tomato plants have
deep roots, so deep, infrequent
watering creates strong, healthy
plants.

10 more tomato tips can be found
on our Garden blog. You'll find the
