[日常] Tomatoes in Season::蕃茄季節

I’ve been craving for tomatoes lately but hadn’t been able to ease those carving.

Tomatoes can be an indulgence to poor International students

as price is often fixed high and rarely goes down.

At least $6 per kg for off season,

and should be around $ 2 – 4 per kg in season

最近都好想吃蕃茄 但無論如何都沒辦法滿足吃番茄的慾望

對於貧窮的留學生,蕃茄算是個奢侈品

因為它的賣價一般都很高

除非是夏季價錢才稍微降下來

But clearly this year’s weather hadn’t been good to the crops,

continuous heat waves may have caused tomato supplies to plunge and price remained fairly high despite it’s in season.

顯然今年的天氣不怎麼好

連續幾個星期的大熱天可能把夏菜都熱壞了

所以就算是當季的蕃茄,價錢沒辦法降低

I’m surprised to see prices starting to get a little low after we enter Autumn.

Perhaps it’s really about the weather.

These days are cool but still enough sunshines for summer crops to grow.

So finger-crossed for the next few weeks that tomato prices stays low so I could indulge myself with more Italian tomato dishes before completely saying good-bye to this summer crop.

但入秋之後,蕃茄的價錢反而降下來了

或許是天氣轉涼,但乃擁有充足的陽光讓還沒長出的夏菜生長吧?

希望接下來的幾個星期乃可以享用到便宜的蕃茄

做一些自己喜歡吃的意大利蕃茄料理
