Thats cheap compared to what I have paid for tomatoes here in SW ohio. The farmer explained he sells them by the pound and that he guarentees that they are organic , no pesticides, plus they are not bruised or unripe. I would rater pay $4.00 for a couple of really nice wonderful tomatoes than to spend the same 4 bucks on a sandwich made by some high school kid at a drive thru. I guess it boils down to what is worth spending 4 bucks on right?
Sorry for the double post- but on a separate thing- about those tomatoes...
WE grew our own here and had a great harvest through June and July, but the temperature hit 90 and stayed over 90 and tomatoes really don't LIKE that. Also then it got very dry and we went into drought.
I know a guy who has 5 acres of tomatoes and come August he told me his plants were just dying. He irrigates but the temp was killing them. We had week after week after week of high 90s and 100s in Georgia. Then it was dry on top of that, and usually it is humid here.
So anyway, the heatwave we experienced in prime producing season could be affecting tomato prices.
If i had not planted so many, I'd not have any now. As it is I get 2 or 3 a day. It was laundry baskets and I thought I'd never get them all canned and dried. But I did.
