That's it! It's OFFICIAL!! I'm sick of the media twist on the Tomato/Salmonella story.

Suffice it to say that there's another way around it.

Finally, if you want to grow your own, while this is probably the worst time of the year to try and plant tomatoes and/or grow them from seed, it is the perfect time to build your beds for the Fall Vegetable Garden of your dreams.
