This week, Chubeza – along with the entire organic market – is experiencing an acute shortage of tomatoes. Usually, when our harvest quantities are low (as happens mainly during the transitional seasons, like now) we can purchase supplemental vegetables from other growers. This year, however, there’s been a serious tomato shortage for the past several weeks. We had been lucky till now, thanks to an abundance of tomatoes in the field, but this week a serious, annoying pest, the “Tuta absoluta” tomato moth, has struck our tomatoes and forced us to sort many of the less-than-perfect crop. (We now have an abundance of Grade B tomatoes….). Thus, this week’s box contains only a small quantity of tomatoes, which we truly hope is a temporary condition. Hopefully the situation will improve over the weeks to come.
