Still anxious about the Salmonella found in tomatoes? Although some cases have been reported as recently as late June, don’t let it stop you from enjoying fresh, seasonal tomatoes. Turn to local markets instead of industrial food to lessen your chances of getting salmonella or try growing them yourself.

Although the season is almost through to successfully grow your own tomatoes, our wonderful article on growing tomatoes in the winter by David Cavagnaro may be helpful to you if the outbreak continues in the upcoming months.
