All of the fast food restaurants are now placing signs up saying that due to the shortage of tomato crops they are eliminating serving tomatoes.

So I'm thinking about approaching some of the local restaurants until I find a taker to see about selling tomatoes to them.

My problem since I am new at this is figuring out how much to charge and what size to sell.

So any suggestions/help on how to come up with a figure as well as trying to figure out how many tomato plants to grow to meet the need.

Also, I plan on asking them if there is a certain type of tomato that they would like me to grow...

So I'm a sponge waiting to soak up your suggestions.

Thanks so much
