christine oliger Q: DO YOU THINK THE VIGILS ARE HELPING THE CAUSE TO BRING THE TROOPS HOME? A: “I think it’s been bringing public awareness, yes. And I think the more public awareness there is, the better it is. We’ve certainly gotten a lot more support over the years that we’ve been here. And, as you can hear, we get a lot of honks from people who believe we’re doing the right thing and support our efforts.” Christine Oliger, Iraq War Vigil, Germantown Ave and Bethlehem Pike.

Fahnestock Grows Greenhouse Tomatoes in Soil

robert fahnestock tomatoes Q: WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO GROW THESE GREENHOUSE TOMATOES IN SOIL OVER WATER?  A: “Before we built the first greenhouse we bought this tomato from a grower that grows them in water and another grower that grows them in soil. When we cut that tomato and put it in the refrigerator if we didn’t want to use the whole tomato, the one grown in water went flat, like soup the next morning. The one grown in soil kept its shape.” Robert Fahnestock, Fahnestock Fruit Farm of Lititz, PA at farmer’s market, Germantown Ave and Mermaid Lane. Fahnestock_tomatoes_smiling
