Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A suit airs debate on organic vs. modified crops
The New York Times - 2/8/2012.

Last frosts in the spring come much earlier and first frosts in the fall much later, I remember often calling neighbors for a "tomato alert" in early October. Now killing frosts can come the middle or end of October.

After a long discussion, the City Council voted Monday night not to amend the city's Farmers Market Ordinance to require vendors to display a placard and provide handouts to consumers detailing the risks of unpasteurized milk.
