Re: “The Veggie Patch

Jennifer, if you are annoyed by local, organic farmers trying to make a modest living, then perhaps you should shop at Wal-Mart or better yet, get in line at the pantry. Organic farmers bear the cost of producing food, unlike subsidized conventional agriculture which pushes these costs (costs of energy, pollution, etc.) onto society. There is nothing sustainable about producing tomatoes and peppers, heat-loving crops, in the winter. Lastly, Dr. Bouchard does not contribute to a local food economy by undercutting local farmers who need to make a livable wage for their hard efforts. At $2/lb for tomatoes, Dr. Bouchard is not breaking even on his production costs and this undermines other local farmers. While his charity is commenable, his business practices are not.
