Tomato troubles? Buy local or grow your own

Andrew Norton

I don't anticipate any tomato shortages or problems with salmonella this summer. My tomatoes are growing great in my raised bed garden. I planted two different varieties - Big Boy and Beefsteak as well as some Sweet 100 grape tomatoes. I can't wait until they are ready. Yum! If you don't have a garden of your own you can always stop at one of the numerous roadside stands and farmer's markets this summer to get your tomato fix. An added bonus is that by purchasing your fruits and veggies locally you are keeping more money in the local economy. Right now, Michigan's economy could use all of the help it can get.

So, until my tomatoes are ready I'll be able to pick up some greenhouse tomatoes (that's all that's ready in Michigan right now) at Hubbard's Corey Lake Orchard or one of the local farmer's markets.

And, just for fun a cute little tomato ditty, "Home Grown Tomatoes."

Explore your local Farmers' Market this summer

Help support local growers this summer season by shopping at farmers' markets across Michigan. Don't know where the nearest farmers' market is? MSU has partnered up with Michigan Farmers Market Association and the Michigan Food & Farming Systems to create a website that lets vendors find a place to sell their homemade/homegrown goods as well as lets potential customers find farmers' markets.
