Contaminated tomatoes have supermarkets and restaurants scrambling this week to remove them from their shelves and menus in at least nine states. I hope the people who fell ill to the salmonella poisoning are back on their feet soon. Times like this make me appreciate the fact that I grow many of my own favorite vegetables and fruit. Tomatoes are on the top of that list. I must have 10 different varieties this year tucked into my “square foot garden” and the overflow, in pots.
“Honk” at me if you grow your own tomatoes. Anybody enjoying an early harvest? Anybody get sick?
