Are we running out of tomatoes?
Are we running out of Tomatoes?
I've not been paying attention to this story (there is a story, right?) so I'm not sure how bad things are. I recall seeing a news blurb here-and-there about a tomato shortage and rising costs... but now it's hit me personally. Recently it seems anything I order with tomato sauce or tomatoes in any other form, whole or otherwise, is being rationed like we're the sole survivors on a tiny island with a single tomato plant. From pizzas, Italian subs and just burgers and sandwiches... where's the tomatoes? Where's the sauce? Why is everything so dry?
I'm just complaining about fast-food... so I can only imagine what's going in the world of fine dining. Probably still the same portions, with a price increase?
Can somebody please give me the 'short'...simple-man's version? :)
