The Cost of Growing Tomatoes

Dear Ray:

Recently on the show you mentioned the cost of growing tomatoes. With all due respect, come on! I find it difficult to believe that the cost of each tomato you grew is $11! That sounds way too low to me!

So far, my expenses are: a Bobcat 863 to clear the plot, $27,000. A dump trailer to haul in manure, $7,000. And 10 tomato plants at $6 a piece. So far, I have gotten two beauties and four more are looking hopeful. At this point, my beefsteaks are $14,000 a piece!
