 h1. Dear Readers,

 Hothouse tomatoes perplex me. 

 You can't tell how they'll taste just by looking at them, those perfect globes basking in the grocer's fluorescent light. Some of them taste horrible. Others really aren't so bad, although they can't compare with the fat beauties my grandmother has managed to grow in her backyard every summer for 47 years. 

 So other questions arise. Are they grown with pesticides? And what about nutrients? Are hydroponic foods good for us?

 This week, Tracy Ilene Miller introduces us to the efficient world of modern hydroponics. It's clear that hydroponics have a central role in modern agriculture. But what will that role be? Leave a comment, and let us know what you think.
