ROTTEN TOMATOES

-

IF COLUMNIST Peter Gleeson is right (C-M, Apr 12), the only people or groups paying $30 per kilo for tomatoes will be those to whom money is no object and the high-class restaurant­s, which are probably charging the equivalent in their already expensive side salads.

If such prediction­s become reality, you can expect the television home gardening shows to include segments related to growing tomatoes as the cheaper alternativ­e.

On the positive side, the home-grown tomatoes will probably be tastier.
