Some helpful hints for green beans:
A bushel of beans is about 30 lbs.
One pound of green beans with the the tips removed and the beans sliced = about 3 cups.
1-1/2 to 2-1/2 lbs. beans = 1 quart canned.
Mini (3" or less) - $100.00 per bushel Small (3" - 4") - $72.00 per bushel Medium (4" - 5") - $65.00 per bushel Large (5" or larger) - $55.00 per bushel
A few helpful hints for cucumbers:
1 bunch of dill is enough for 5 quarts of cucumbers.
It is best to can your pickles within a few days of picking.
Mixed canning tomatoes - $55.00 per bushel. These are mostly from the high tunnel and are firmer than "field run" tomatoes.
"Field run" tomatoes (some blemishes and the mix of tomatoes which we're picking that day) - $43.00 per bushel.
Juliet tomatoes - $30.00 per half bushel. These are small, firm tomatoes; great for tomato sauce. Cook them up with the skins on, then separate the sauce from the skins and seeds with a tomato mill or collander after cooking.
A few helpful hints for tomatoes:
We recommend purchasing or depositing two half-bushel containers when buying a full bushel of tomatoes. If you load a bushel of tomatoes in one container, the bottom ones will be squashed. You may also bring your own boxes.
There are about 53 pounds of tomatoes in a bushel.
