Rochelle Buisness to Grow Tomatoes All Year Round
If you love fresh tomatoes you love these summer months, but come winter finding a tasty one is really hard.
But, not any more. Rochelle has a new business that will grow tasty, fresh tomatoes all year round!Mighty Vine in Rochelle, according to the Rochelle News Leader, recently completed building their 7.5-acre greenhouse that will serve the Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison markets with projected yields of 4.5 million pounds of tomatoes per year in phase one of the project.
Now that is going to be so super yummy. Instead of getting what I call hot house tomatoes, that were picked early and trucked in several days to weeks to the grocery store, will now be fresh picked within hours. Mmm, just like from my parent's garden.
