Tofu Trees

A column in today's Baltimore Sun begins with this paragraph:

When gas prices were clunking along in the low 3-buck-something range, mass transit didn't seem nearly as interesting as it does now. For the vast majority of us, the idea of sharing the commuting experience with strangers was as remote as planting our own tofu trees.
Yes, that does seem remote, because tofu does not grow on trees.
