Canadian Greenhouse Conference -- Day 2

Spent a second full day at #cgc11 -- what a valuable opportunity!  There's some interesting and exciting new things going on in the greenhouse industry from beneficial biological pest control to state of the art technology.  My favourite booth today featured this awesome Vegetable Lady made by (I believe) the wife of Howard Huy, Leamington vegetable grower and representative of RZH Canada.  Also on display were some of the more unusual tomato genetics available from Rijk Zwaan: a coeur de boeuf 'Rugantino' with deep furrows that was just introduced this year, and a green-ripening slicing tomato 'Montenegro.  I received some great information from Gus Mastronardi about some of the concerns facing atypical production that might be relevant to our tomato research project :)
