We have quite a few farm markets around us, so prices are competitive.

I just checked the prices on canning tomatoes from my local farmshare and they are selling for $23/20 lb box. A bushel is 56 pounds. :(

I wish i had a yard.

Edit: Should mention that these are all organic tomatoes. Most of the small time farmers around here had to go all organic to make any money.
