: The Ontario growing season is making up for the late start this summer. Local fruit and vegetables are abundant. Everything from aprictos all the way down to zucchini is available and the quality is fantastic. The local tomato season is just getting into gear and the timing couldn’t be better because all USA tomatoes are up in price this week.
