    Has anyone felt the pinch of the tomato shortage?

    Well, if you haven't yet, you will soon.

    Tomatoes are up 148% in the last two weeks. Right along with them, cucumbers, oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits, green, red and yellow peppers are soaring through the roof.

    Here's a link to the news story: Fat Tomatoes

    What a mess we've got,

    So far on the East Coast. I haven't seen any unusual increases in price, other than the usual end of season bump. Time will tell
