I did. Really.
I didn't go to the store to get them. I bought local. I try to buy local as much as possible.
As a matter of fact, it was possibly the best tomato I ate in a while. I walked proud holding my basket.. Red.. really red. Juicy. Seeds.. Watery. . got home, put a little salt on the tomato, a little pepper, and just a touch of olive oil.
While the rest of the nation is frightened by the salmonella scare I ate tomatoes. And it felt great.
Also purchased: Asparagus.. red leaf lettuce. Strawberries. All grown locally. I left with confidence.
Buy locally. Eat locally. Get to know your food. You are exactly what you eat--and what your food eats, too.

With the nation gripped in a tainted tomato scare, Louisiana is just starting to bring in their crop of Creole tomatoes. Tomatoes harvested in Louisiana are not affected by the recent salmonella outbreak and are safe to consume, the Food and Drug Administration said Monday.
