If breast milk is nature’s greatest gift and olive oil is a close second, then tomatoes are a very close third.
After a winter of eating mealy tomatoes picked weeks before they were ripe, and a spring and early summer of eating rushed to market tomatoes that hint at true flavor, my garden is finally producing what really might be nature’s perfect solid food.
I’m an urban gardener (that is soon to change and finally I will have enough land to plant a serious vegetable garden) so for now, I have five tomato plants and enough basil to make pesto for all ofItaly. Growing your own food isn’t just a hobby anymore. It’s becoming a necessity.
Conventionally grown produce is laced with cancer causing chemicals. The organic label is becoming so compromised that soon there will be no difference in health benefits.
