Sandusky Register | Tomatoes towering high at Mucci Farms

Sandusky Register | Tomatoes towering high at Mucci Farms: It’s quite a tall order to start growing 250,000 plants, let their vines reach 55 feet high and harvest them all within a two-month time frame.

But executives supervising a $70 million privately funded, groundbreaking agriculture venture in Huron remain confident they can produce and achieve this desired outcome.

Green vegetation consumes a 25-acre greenhouse run by Mucci Farms, the Canada-headquartered company overseeing all operations.

Up to 250,000 individual tomatoes are growing from inside there.�Since workers seeded several types of tomatoes — cluster, beefsteak, cocktail, roma, cherry and more — on March 15, they continue to sprout and develop into flavorful fruits.

These NYC Farms Are Growing More Than Food | New York City, NY Patch

These NYC Farms Are Growing More Than Food | New York City, NY Patch: Paul Philpott works inside a shipping container tucked in a parking lot across from the Marcy Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Inside, dozens of white plastic columns hide a bounty of radishes, kale, lettuce, beets and tatsoi, an Asian cabbage similar to bok choy, all lit by bright pink lights. It's humid and warm, a respite from an unseasonably cold April afternoon.

The vertical hydroponic farm that Philpott took over in late 2016 yields an average of 35 pounds of produce a week. He sells about half to restaurants, caterers and personal chefs through his business, Gateway Greens.

The futuristic farm is a far cry from the community garden he helped his grandmother tend as a boy in East Harlem's Lexington Houses, the public housing complex where he grew up and still lives.

How much you have to save to buy a house in 25 major cities - Business Insider

How much you have to save to buy a house in 25 major cities - Business Insider: A new report by SmartAsset reveals that, in some cities, the average home outweighs the average income by so much that it can take nearly a decade to save for a 20% down payment.

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau's One-Year American Community Survey, SmartAsset calculated how long it takes to afford a 20% down payment on the median home in 50 of America's largest cities if workers earning the median income saved 20% of their salary a year. They then divided the estimated down payment by the annual estimated savings to get the estimated years of saving needed to afford a down payment.

Turns out, California buyers face a long road to home — six of the top ten cities where Americans need to save the longest for a house are in The Golden State.
