Where does your food come from?


What a great rain shower we had today. My garden is happy. I’m happy.

But my brother wife and his wife Kim are really happy. They are maintain a 55 x 110-foot garden up in Whitney Point,  N.Y. Talk about watering challenges.


I don’t know how they manage it, but they have 78 tomato plants, beets and a bunch of other vegetables. They bought canning jars, a pressure cooker and are going to town. Mark said the tomatoes will give enough paste, sauce and salsa to last a year, and then some.


“I just don’t want to buy produce at the store,” he said this afternoon when he was taking a break because of the rain. “You don’t know what kind of chemicals you’re getting.”


I’m sure there are a lot of people who share that sentiment. Did you start a garden for the first time this year so you know what you’re getting with your food? How’s your garden growing? We want to hear from you. Send me an email at mgouger@poconorecord.com.
