Rough winter weather driving produce prices higher...

As we all watch the weather this winter, what a lot of people have failed to realize is the effect these conditions will have on the produce that was being grown in the warm weather climates that recently suffered snow and cold conditions on these crops. 

The damage that was imposed on these crops is beginning to be felt at your local grocers.  Prices are going up and possibly quality of the produce being offered is less than we would normally expect.  Imported tomatoes are more often not as juicy or it is possible they could come in colors we would not normally expect.

You may begin to see veggies unavailable at restaurants as a way to keep prices from getting out of hand.  Here is an article from ABC News that elaborates on the problems that we could expect.
