IMMOKALEE, Fla. — Growers of the bulk of all U.S. winter tomatoes struck a major deal Tuesday with a Florida farmworkers’ group to boost their wages and working conditions, clearing the way for food giants such as McDonald’s, Burger King and upscale grocer Whole Foods to pass along more money to poor field pickers for their harvests.
After a slow start and curly leaves, my tomatoes have finally hit their stride! Tall and bushy, and loaded with green fruit, I can’t wait to see that red blush and bite into my first Early Girl of the season.
