All in all, at this point you can probably feel pretty safe eating tomatoes. Especially if you stick to ‘on the vine’. But for me – I think I’ll stick to farmers markets. There’s lots of beautiful great tasting stuff out there right now. Why buy the inferior grocery stuff anyway?
Next time you’re about to drive past that vegetable stand – pull in. There’s great stuff waiting for you there.
