Congratulations to the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ Association and editor Karen Davidson for the new look and functionality of the website for The Grower, its monthly tabloid newspaper. I like its clean appearance and the attention given by Karen to current news — there are three ways to find every story, as well as a PDF of the entire edition, which contains my news and opinion column.

Stories in the latest issue include this one about opportunities to grow crops for ethnic markets. The farmer pictured below is Spencer Chan from the Holland Marsh, with his field of Chinese broccoli. The photo appears in the print- and online edition.
