Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Tomato grafting: it’s easier than you think and will yield results
The Atlantic - 1/24/2012.
By Ari LeVaux – With the days getting longer, it's officially time to start planning the garden. At the very least, make a cup of tea and open a seed catalog. Depending on what you have in mind, it might be time to place an order. If your plans include tomatoes, especially heirlooms, it's worth considering ways to fortify them. Anyone who's lost tomatoes to blight knows the heartbreak of yanking whole plants still laden with fruit, and removing them from the scene.
Farmers are working toward a brighter future for organic vegetables
Good - 1/23/2012.

New pest arrivals bode ill for Maine gardens, lawns
Maine Sunday Telegram - 1/22/2012.
By Tom Atwell – Three new pests could cause problems for Maine farmers and gardeners this year – pests that arrived just last year or could arrive this year. The biggest concern is the spotted wing drosophila, an Asian fruit fly that – unlike most fruit flies – feeds on fruit as it is ripening rather than when it is going rotten.
A new gardener’s guide to choosing vegetable varieties
Bangor Daily News - 1/21/2012.
By Reeser Manley – What is the best summer squash variety for a Maine garden? While there are lists of recommended varieties of every vegetable that can be grown in Maine, if I really want to know which variety will grow trouble-free in my garden or which variety has real flavor, I rely on the experience of local gardeners.
