Why are tomatoes better in the summer?

by Greg Harbaugh on 03/25/15

You're eating local produce grown by a local farmer in local dirt.  In December that tomato you're thinking about buying was either grown in Mexico, California, or in some hot house.  It was picked before it was ripe, shipped to some warehouse and then trucked to your local supermarket.  No wonder it tastes like a sock.

What does this have to do with Food Safety?  Would you be more comfortable eating fruit bought at a road side stand on hwy 24 or grown somewhere in Chile and transported forever by whomever?  Where did the water come from that irrigated the plants?  Did most of the employees use the Porta Johns? 

Buy local , Eat local food, prepared properly by people who washed their hands!!!
