I was a first time gardener this past summer and I found these things to be the simplest and most productive produce items: tomatoes, beans, squash, onions, cucumbers (you need bees apparently to make these grow), sunflowers and lettuce. We had tons of produce and it was all organic! I also did pretty good with peas.

Seriously, grow your own. I couldn't even use all the tomatoes we grew last summer. I even kept two neighbors in tomatoes all summer. I have some still sitting in my garage in jars. It's already warming enough here to start planning the garden for this coming growing season. No crisis here. I'm thinking of starting my own bee hives and have tons (not literally) of coffee grounds saved to grow my own mushrooms. You don't even need a big yard! You can grow it all on your patio, balcony or deck! Start gardening! It's economical and good therapy!

Fine if you live in the country but it has been proven that if you use the small tomato growing thing you are paying way more then you would simply buying them at the store with less trouble.

Of course with this Obama tyranny going on maybe it is now financially viable to do so.

No more Mexican tomatoes with nummy DDT on them and in some cases grown in human excrement, besides most tomatoes are inferior and over priced every where with skins are so thick and the product is often tasteless.

I have seen this sort of thing before, in Italy. A cross boarder tomato fight is just what America and Mexico need. SPLAT!

Remember when a tomato used to taste as sweet as an apple... those were the days... Now they are just "red".

Grow your own damn tomatoes, and don't buy ketchup. That will force a tomato glut in the market causing a price drop. Tomato Ketchup is a horrible condiment.

"Tomato Ketchup is a horrible condiment. "

I just finished two grilled cheese sandwiches and I couldn't disagree more!

Winter just isn't tomato season. Florida tomatoes are nasty and tasteless because they are bred to withstand long shipping distances. Local tomatoes taste better - sure, you can't get them year round, but you can eat other things the rest of the year.

Tomatoes are easy to grow and once you eat a home grown one you won't be buying them out of season anyways. Those gas ripened ones don't even taste like a real tomato.

My local commercially grown greenhouse hydroponic tomatoes are much better than any imported tomato anyway,cheap isnt equal to better,I just wish they were organic....

Good thing so many people don't like tomatoes. Besides, I'd gladly pay way more for my tomatoes if it would keep people in Florida employed instead of Mexico.

There's a place in Maine called "Backyard Farms" that grows amazing greenhouse tomatoes. If they can do it in Maine, surely we can have our own U.S. grown tomatoes.

Could the tomato be something new our country could produce? Let's hope so. The Mexican tomatoes seem to be covered in a fowl tasting grease, Canada's tomatoes taste much better.
But nothing compares to Locally Grown! Get On It USA!

We don't buy produce unless it is organic, or at least U.S., Canadian, Israeli, or European grown. Mexico, China, and Central America have virtually no controls on toxics and bio-contaminents.

We should stop allowing pesticide laden fruits and vegetables to be dumped on U.S. consumers.

And the U.S. government should try helping U.S. citizens for a change, and not just foreign lobbyists with big checks.
