Tomatoes that taste like mid-summer in early spring
If you love tomatoes, you know how hard it is to get good ones this time of year. Well, not anymore. About an hour-and-a-half west of Chicago, there are summer tasting tomatoes growing on Illinois farmland, as far as the eye can see. Tomato connoisseur Micah Materre has that story.
You can find MightyVine tomatoes in most major grocery stores. And, they're working with the city of Chicago to get them into farmers' markets this spring and early summer. There are already plans to double the glass house space from 7 1/2 acres to 15 acres. For even more information click these links.
