Dutch tomatoes ...... rant There I was at the Farmer's Market in need of good ingredients for a salad. I found the scallions, fresh cilantro, a couple of jalapenos, then I spotted some deep red tomatoes on the vine. They smelled so good, looked so good. I get home, set about chopping, imagining the tomatoes are from California or Florida or maybe even local Tennessee ones. Then I see the label, the tomatoes are Dutch. What are we doing importing tomatoes from Holland? Can't we grow tasty tomatoes in America? How much does it cost to send a box of tomatoes from Rotterdam to Tennessee? Too much, I bet.
