The weather was a bit iffy last week and all of our tomatoes were picked as night time temps produced a few frosty mornings. Ninety-seven percent of our crop was still green. They are in boxes stored in the cool basement ... and are ripening up nicely. From our 12'x4' raised bed we harvested 120 pounds of assorted heirlooms planted from seeds saved from last year's harvest; that's free tomatoes!
Speaking of seeds, please take the time to watch this movie, Genetic Roulette, while it's available for free through September 22. If you are still on the fence about the dangers of GMO crops, this will help push you over the edge. If you live in California, be sure to get out and vote in the coming election on Prop 37, making it the law to have food labels state if it's made with GMO's. You can bet that a very HIGH percentage of grocery store items and processed foods contain them.
