Chris writes about his plot in northern Illinois, "Well, not all is gone to ruin, as the picture shows. That represents perhaps the first tenth of the fruit on our vines. Whereas we did very well with cherry tomatoes last year, whatever inscrutable weather pattern variations that favor one plant over another have given us a bounty of cucumbers and heavenly big, rich, complex heirloom tomatoes. Cool and wet this year."

Notice the book. The family will be "eating local" all winter, this week they're making preserves.
