WELL, there are signs in the drive-through windows at burger joints apologizing for the absence of tomatoes.

Yeah, its crazy. We aren't offering tomatoes in our condiment bar at work, because of the price (I assume) and the quality (the reason given to the customers). I do have to admit the quality was HORRIBLE before the big wigs told us not to put them out any more.

Yep, our prime tomato growing land has been having crazy weather. Way too much rain, then freezing, and other not good stuff for growing.

I think your idea is very good, i have a back yard, i can grow them with myself. I love eating tomatos very much, but now the price is a liitle expensive.

I sometimes feel sorry for myself because we don't have those big fresh veggie stands that they have in other places but now I am only 20 miles away from the tomato hydorponic greenhouses... Now they aren't garden but they are I would say 75% better than store bought. They smell and taste like tomatoes not some red filler for a salad...lol


We have to go from about Nov. To March without them. They also have this year cherry tomatoes that I roasted some the other day....Oh, My...... and they have English cukes too.
