Bob Zeni says once you take a bite of a homegrown heirloom tomato, you’ll never look back. He’s doubled production this year, growing 4,000 plants in his La Grange yard, in a greenhouse.
Now, he’s doing pop-up pick-ups at locations around Chicago.
This year, there’s something really unique! A La Grange resident gave him seeds he had kept from a village in Italy from his grandfather. Now, Zeni is the only person who sells those tomatoes in the United States.
