All Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes restaurants are closing permanently. "We can't see our open buffet business model succeeding in the covid-19 era"

For those unfamiliar with the chain, it's like a non-shitty Hometown Buffet or Golden Corral, with a salad bar heavy smaller selection of better healthier food for a slightly higher price point.

Golden Coral was above Par back when Jeff Foxworthy was the spokes person. That's no lie or joke. But then one day his picture disappeared from all of the inside signage and posters, and the food turned into instant Shit, as soon as they went missing. Hometown Buffet should have gotten people arrested that crap they served.

Sweet Tomatoes has gone so far down hill, they might as well just keep on rolling through the woods and into the lake.
Their soup crocks shrank to accommodate about 4 ounces, their Soup bins went from being at least 3 gallons deep to about a gallon deep. And the soups in them started having about 70% less of the ingredient that made it what ever kind of soup. Their pasta bar used to be great, but in the end they were just putting out pasta with jar sauce, and white cheese wiz. The baker would never put out more bread until someone complained. Meanwhile the price of this shit went from about $7.00 when they first opened to almost $15.00 without a coupon.

I say good ridance to all of the above.

Having kids we used to go to them all frequently, because the kids could get pizza and kiddie crap like that. They all used to be great but Hometown Buffet, it was always unapologetic cheap bad food.

Grow your own garden.
Use your shit for fertilizer
Wipe your ass with tomato leaves, no TP required.
It's a win win win in the age of covid..

You can’t use your own shit for fertilizer, it’ll burn the roots.

Dad was a farmer, we knew all those little things. Now cow shit, that’s good stuff.

WOW. Sweet Tomatoes is always packed, I take my mother there when I visit, she loves the place. Haven't been in a few years though.

But you got to let it ferment out in the sun a few months until it dries out and turns back to a dirt like consistency.
It's like axle grease when it's fresh, that will burn the plants faster than a drunkard's terd.

My Uncle kept a huge pile behind the Milking barn.
Every now and then We would have to go and shovel the top crusty later open to expose the wet green gooey gaseous stuff in the center.

He told me to walk up on top of the pile and shovel one time. I finally broke through the hard crusty top and then sank down and ended up to me chest in green gooey cow pies.

Did you earn the nickname "Biff" after that?

I sank down in it, not dumped on me.
I lost my shoe once I got out, I wasn't going back after it. There was a hose right there, and hosed down and changed my clothes.

My Dad and Grandpa always made spoonerisms. I've picked up the habit from them.

Ouch! I can see that now, taking those soiled clothes to the girl at the washboard and tub "Scrub these please, sis." I bet she was happy with you!
