A suit airs debate on organic vs. modified crops

As a weekend orchardist and gardener, I have certainly experienced changes in the climate since 1978, when I moved to Maine from Virginia. 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.
