Dear MOTHER: October/November 2013

Reader letters about chickens in the garden, pressure canning, apartment gardening, labeling genetically modified foods, a local urban homesteaders’ network, capitalism, green tomato recipes, and more.

For reader Judy Millspaugh Anderson, green tomatoes evoke memories of her grandmother’s green tomato preserves, which were always personalized with sliced candied ginger.
