Re:Real sad story about winter tomatos and the workers.
Our local growers have been providing great luscious peaches( especially the white variety), prune plums, apricots, nectarines, and now the apples are coming on the market, and soon we'll have Bartlett pears. The pears and apples will remain excellent all Winter, but the rest of the fruits are purely seasonal for us.
btw: Our local corn, tomato, pumpkin, squash, and fall greens crops were severely damaged in the flooding last week - as much of those crops are grown on flood prone bottom land. It is a sad sight to see hundreds of acres of crops just coming into maturity drowned in mud and unsalvageable.
